Today, The Mazzo Group donates to build the 10th complete home since joining Giveback Homes. Soon, Maria Santos Palacios and her family in El Salvador will have a safe place to call home, just in time for the holidays.


Maria is 56 years old and lives with her four grandchildren. Maria spends her days taking care of her family, cooking, cleaning and taking on any small jobs she can find to earn extra income for their family. Maria also enjoys taking care of their animals, going fishing and taking care of her plants.


Maria’s dream is to see their lives improve and see their family grow and stay healthy. The structure they are currently living in is made of wood, metal scraps, dirt floors and shared mattresses to sleep.


Rudis (28 years old) and Cristian (23 years old) both work hard every day as farmers at a nearby ranch, feeding grooming and maintaining cattle. Together, they earn about $300/month.


Karen (17 years old) is in ninth grade, she studies hard but also helps her grandma around the house with chores and cooking. She loves to dance and her dream is to finish high school. Geisel (8 years old) is in second grade, she is always smiling and enjoys playing with other children in the community. She also loves to help her grandma take care of their animals and plants.

Stay tuned for updates! Thank you to The Mazzo Group and their clients who have made this story possible.
