The Paredes Family Closed on their House

Their income is limited, relying solely on Homar’s salary as a roof installer for Crowther Roofing for the last two years. They were able to find housing in the form of a one-bedroom trailer.

“There is no space and everything feels so tight. We have problems with termites on the walls. In the summer it gets really hot inside because we don’t have a central air conditioner,” said Rosaura.

It has been especially tough on their 6-year old daughter, Kaysie, who has never had a bedroom of her own. She is doing well in school and, while she loves trying new activities, drawing and coloring are her favorite.

Through family friends, they heard about a homeownership program called Habitat for Humanity of Martin County.

The Pedro Family Closed on their House
Marta Pedro arrived in Indiantown when she was three years old. Her parents worked in agriculture and secured employment in Indiantown. With time, they grew to love the town and became faithful members of Holy Cross Catholic Church, which Marta still attends.

“I don’t see myself raising them anywhere else but in the same town,” Marta said. “My oldest daughter loves to hear that I went to the same school she is attending, Warfield Elementary School.”

Marta is the loving, devoted mother to 7-year old Layla and 4-year old Lyvia. Layla is a bright girl, who enjoys everything from writing, reading, drawing and dancing. Little sister, Lyvia, is her mini-me and wants to do everything Layla does, Marta said.

For the past four years, Marta has worked as a Front Desk Coordinator for Legacy Behavioral Health Center. It is a job she loves despite having to turn down pay increases due to living in a government-subsidized rental apartment. Earning too much income would make her ineligible to live in that apartment, Marta said.
