According to Estrada, the future home for undocumented students in Edinburg, Texas was purchased by Chavezs father who entrusted it to his daughters nonprofit on a rent-to-own basis. With the help of fundraisers and private donations, Chavez and Estrada hope to pay off the property in the next six years.
Sand2Pearls plans to host a block party in early April where the organization will seek help with renovations in order to make the home move-in ready before the new school year begins.
“We’re thankful to local businesses that have agreed to donate furniture, paint and materials for the house,” said Chavez. “We also feel very blessed to work with agencies like the Edinburg Housing Authority for welcoming our outreach.”
In addition to their Dream Home initiative, Chavez and Estrada have begun spreading the word about President Obamas recent executive action which expanded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Well also be doing outreach to high schools to educate teachers and counselors about DACA, Estrada told NBC News.
Undocumented students in Texas are currently eligible for lower-cost, in-state tuition at public universities and colleges in the state and can receive taxpayer-funded grants to assist with their educational expenses.
Well that sux!.....Texas Ping!
I’ll donate some thermite.
They get GRANT FUNDING for college also-FREE. That’s what the IRCOT v. Lone Star College System is about. 5 years later after winning in the Tx Supreme Court over taxpayer standing the case can go to trial. Wouldn’t it be nice to pull the rug out on this arrogant crew?
Yeah, I wish I could pay off my property in six years, but I only work for a living.
