We had the honor of working with the Salazar Family during the winter of 2016. The Dedication for their home took place on February 2, 2016.
Mayra Salazar is the cornerstone of her family. She is the sole provider, leader, and single mother of five bright children, her reasons for her continuous strive to do better. Celia, the oldest, is a free–spirit that loves expressing herself through drawing and painting. Hector, on the other hand, is a typical boy who loves sports, especially soccer. Carla loves music and likes to sing. Her brother Jesus is a movie buff and action hero fan who loves Batman and Jurassic Park. Lastly, there is little Carolina, whose hobbies are still being discovered.
Ms. Salazar is a steady, full-time employee at Aldi Warehouse. She exemplifies all the values that the Habitat community stands for: she’s hardworking, has overcome struggles, and is willing to do whatever it takes to raise her family in a stable and safe environment.Prior to the build, Mayra’s hope was that, “God gives me the good health I need to work and achieve so that I can show fellow single moms that by having faith you, too, can purchase your own home.” What an amazing goal! Habitat for Humanity of Denton County is proud to have worked with Ms. Salazar and her family.
