Working to earn her new home

Maria Antonietta

Maria Antonietta is working her sweat-equity hours at the Antigua Family Development Center.

Maria Antonieta Reyes has already worked 80 sweat-equity hours to earn her two-room home that was installed by a Vision Team in March. Her husband works all day and her oldest child is only 12 years old, so Antonieta is the only member of her family that can come to Common Hope and work the hours. She is very content to do so and smiles as she works, today helping the cleaning staff do laundry.

Last year, Common Hope installed 28 fibrolit homes, and our partner ConstruCasa installed 26 block homes. In total, 54 affiliated families earned homes that are drier, safer, and more dignified.
