A Mother's Dream Comes True Thanks to her Devoted Daughters

Sylvia Bautista shares another beautiful story about giving the keys to the Cortez-Hernandez family, which includes six daughters who were determined to give their mother the home she has always dreamed of owning.

Maria Hernandez had to be both a mother and a father to her six girls as they were growing up. The girls are forever thankful for their mother who has always worked so hard to provide them with all of life’s necessities and partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (HFH GLA) was their chance to thank her for all she has done.  Two of Maria’s daughters, Maricela and Lucia, decided to partner with HFH GLA to purchase the home.   Together, they have contributed more than 250 hours of sweat equity, renovating the Lynwood home for their mother.

When I first showed them the house, all of the girls immediately agreed that their mother should have the master bedroom. They said she deserved it for being the best mother.  The girls stood by with eagerness when I handed Maria the keys and we all watched as she open the door to her new home.  

In the midst of all the joy and celebration, Maria had to leave to be with one of her daughters who was in labor and whose husband is currently deployed. Maricela and Lucia promised Maria that when she returned, the house would be completely decorated for Christmas.

We are so grateful to partner with families like the Cortez-Hernandez’ and wish them continued joy and health in their beautiful new home.  Congratulations on your new grandbaby, Maria!
