Family Stories

The Ramos Family

Benito and Frances live in East Los Angeles with their two sons, Luke and Levi. They have outgrown the house they have lived in for the last eight years, which is also in need of several repairs.  They are excited to own a more spacious home where they can homeschool their boys and invite friends and family over. Benito works as a payroll specialist so that Frances can stay at home to care for Levi and Luke. They are active members of Calvary Chapel in Montebello where they lead support groups for single parents. Luke has played sports from the time he was twenty months old.  He plays basketball, soccer, tee ball, gymnastics, and practices karate.  Levi loves to dance and play with the many instruments they have in their home. The Ramos family has been extremely touched by the joy and positivity they have experienced from the Habitat LA staff while working on their sweat equity hours and cannot wait to move into their new home.
