Meet Antonia and Feliciano
Durham Habitat and the Duke Campus Chapter are very excited to partner with the Hernandez family to construct their new home! Antonia and Feliciano work hard together on site and are out every Saturday, even though their Sweat Equity is complete! They, along with their three children, are ecstatic to live in their own home.
Originally from Mexico, Feliciano and Antonia immigrated to the United States where they met and began their family. Now they want a place that their family can call home. With the purchase of their four bedroom house Antonia and Feliciano will begin to build wealth for their family rather than giving it away on rent.
Their children will also have a safe, warm, and stable place to call home which studies have shown will increase their grades in school, making it easier to get into college.
The Hernandez home is being built by the Habitat Site Supervisor Jerry. Jerry is a Habitat veteran who has also built homes as an AmeriCorps. It is a two story home in the South Side Neighborhood being built in partnership with Duke Habitat, The Duke Office of Durham Affairs, Duke Chapel/The Congregation at Duke Chapel & Duke Alumnus Pradeep Baliga Class of 2006. Ace is an AmeriCorps member in her second year of service.
