On April 30th, we began pouring footers for the next Habitat home in San Juan County. Farmington Daily Times Reporter Mike Easterling stopped by the site to talk about the house plans.
When Santana attended the home application meetings earlier this year, she never thought she and her four daughters would be the next family chosen to partner with Tres Rios Habitat for Humanity. Even now as the plans are being drawn up for her new home on Crouch Mesa, she says, “It just doesn’t seem real. I have goosebumps.”
Santana has worked hard to deserve this opportunity. Even as a young mother, she made the decision to work in daycare so she could be with her children and provide for her family. Her daughters, ages 9, 8, 5 and 4, are sweet young ladies who are flourishing under the loving care of their conscientious mom.
When asked how she and her daughters were feeling about being selected, Santana said, “It is going to be a huge change for the better. We are so very happy to have our own home!”
Having been born and raised in the Farmington area, Santana’s mother, sister and extended family will be by her side throughout the building process.
