Ask Amber Rubio how long she lived at her last address and she is quick to answer, “31 years.”
For her entire life, Rubio has lived at one address, the home of her grandmother who raised her.
But for what seemed like forever, she dreamed of a home of her own, a house for herself and her children.
Rubio had been everywhere, talked to everyone and tried everything, from banks to credit unions, but she could not qualify for a mortgage loan. Then she turned to Habitat for Humanity for assistance, hoping for help in getting a dream home.
