Salvador is a caretaker for a school where his wife Maria is a custodian. They have two children who are in high school and are who they support with their domestic work since Maria works during the day and Salvador during the night. They are a very united family who support each other. With the help they've asked from us, they will build a fence that borders their backyard with which they will have greater security in their home since, due to crime, they will have more home protection and since they live in social housing, the houses are small and with building the fence they will avoid conflicts with their neighbors.
