The Family Selection Committee’s job is to seek out qualified families living in marginal shelters in the San Miguel municipality. The team does a study of the family. In order for families to qualify several critical criteria must be met.
- own their land
- provide proof that any school-age children who will be living in the house are attending school regularly and are receiving satisfactory grades
- provide a drug-free environment with no abuse of alcohol or history of domestic violence
- agree to work on the construction of their home and the one built before or after theirs
- be employed or actively searching for work.
After a thorough study of the potential families, Casita Linda’s Family Selection Committee writes a recommendation and submits it to the Board of Directors for a vote.
