Having moved here from Puerto Rico a couple of years ago, Saúl and Cristina are eager to have their own home. Currently living in a small and unsafe apartment, Cristina is uncomfortable letting her children (Dianaliz, 13; Alex, 10; and James, 4) wander far. When they were accepted into the Habitat program, Cristina said, “Tears began to fill my eyes.” What they will enjoy most when they live in their new home is to “sit down to have a family dinner.”
