In the hills outside Juarez, Mexico, residents build their homes out of whatever they can find.
Shanties made of plywood, disassembled crates and scraps of metal dot the landscape. Doors often are nothing more than a blanket covering an opening, and many homes have dirt floors.
But in this harsh, poverty-stricken land, a symbol of hope was going up one two-by-four at a time. The two-room house would be home for a Juarez couple and their two children.
