FAMILY STORY:

The Sanchez Santos family is originally from the state of Guerrero in the south. They are a very large family with many needs. They moved to Ensenada about fifteen years ago because in Guerrero because they didn't have many opportunities and good work was hard to come by. They have 8 children who range in age from 3 to 18. Bernardo and Margarita have had to work very hard to provide for their children. They have worked in the fields cutting vegetables and what little they earn has always gone to sustaining their family and home. For the last fifteen years, they have lived in rentals, moving from house to house. During those years it was hard because the children were all young and unable to help with their expenses, they didn't have enough money to buy land or any kind of house. Currently, the eldest two are working and helping their parents and with that help, they were able to buy land recently. But because of this, Ana and Angelica have not been able to continue studying. The family lives in a small room that they built with wood. Their situation is hard because they need a home for their children where they can grow and be safe and secure. Sadly, their resources are only enough to cover the expenses of food, shoes and clothing for the growing children, and everyday household expenses. It is very difficult for them to achieve a better life, but they have hope that one day they will have a safe place to call home.
