The Padro Family

Manatee Habitat is happy to introduce you to our newest family entering the Home Buyer Program, The Padro Family. Carmen, Melquisedec 15, Nayely 13, and Elijah 7 who all love family movie nights, fishing, hiking, and DIY projects.

Carmen is originally from Illinois but has lived in Florida since 2001. Her family is spread across the country with a sister in Texas, one in Wisconsin, a brother still in Illinois, but luckily her mom is right here in Bradenton!

Carmen is very familiar with Habitat for Humanity and started looking into joining the Home Buyer Program eight years ago. Now that she meets the program requirements, she can’t wait to get started volunteering for her sweat equity hours because she wants to participate in building homes made out of love and kindness.

Providing her children with housing stability and safe living conditions while investing in her own home is a longtime dream for Carmen. Providing her children with a solid foundation means everything to her! She is also most excited to see her children’s faces when they get the opportunity to see their new home for the first time!
