Oscar also lives with 8 other family members in this house, including his special needs uncle. The roof is made of black plastic which when it rains does not hold the water and the house is flooded including everything underneath, beds, clothes, food, school supplies, etc. The sides of the house are made with whatever scraps the family can find. Currently they do not have a door or any locks on their house, so if left unattended they would get robbed of what little they have. The new house will have doors and windows that lock to allow for freedom for this family.
Oscar told us that when he grows up he "wants to be a carpenter so he can build his mother a house and chairs." Our goal is to raise enough funds to build this house for his family and to add protection to them. This house means hope for this family, provides a safe place to come at night, and also allows Oscar's family members to find jobs to support the family.
