Family Story:

Irene was raised in Ensenada with her family. When she was 22 years old she moved in with her son’s father. She spent five years living with him but Irene suspected that her husband was cheating on her. After a year of being like that, he left the house as well as Irene to pay the rent on her own. Every once in a while her ex-husband comes to visit and helps, but she still doesn’t know what he does for living.

Irene decided to start payments on a piece of property and move onto it instead of having to rent. With the help of her family, she was able to make a small room for herself and her son. Now she has applied for a Home of Hope because her income is not enough to cover everything she needs.
