meet the Romero family
Drafted at age 27, Esteban served with the Army’s 185th Maintenance Battalion providing supply and maintenance support to units in the Long-Binh Bien Hoa complex from 1966 to 1968 before being transferred to the Army Reserves. The Romeros were ecstatic to learn that they had been accepted as future Habitat for Heroes’ homeowners.
The Romeros are excited to spread the word about Habitat for Heroes’, particularly to military veterans. “The program,” Esteban says, “gives me the chance to provide for my family with the happiness and peace of mind that comes with owning a home. I am eager to let other veterans know that it’s never too late to get back on their feet.” Owning a home has also been a lifelong dream of Gloria’s. She says, “Habitat for Humanity is giving my family, and especially my daughter Lisette, the opportunity of a lifetime to live in a secure environment.” For the Romeros, a Habitat CFC home is the beginning of a new chapter in their family story.
