MEET OUR FAMILIES

 

As a single mother, Maria Duron has always dreamt of having a house to be “home” to her and her three daughters, Luz, Carolina and Daniela. Maria currently works as a fulltime housekeeper for Baptist Community Services where she has been employed for eleven years.

As a longtime Amarillo resident, Maria currently shares a two bedroom rent house with her and her children, claiming that they share beds and never quite know how they will pay for the high rent or utilities that come with renting. Maria thanks Habitat for a “big and wonderful opportunity” and says her “dream came true. We are going to have a three bedroom, two bath house and it will finally be our home”.

Maria's home will be Amarillo Habitat's 115th build and the last in the Glenwood Park neighborhood.
