Carmen and Family

Ruby (13), Antonio (12), Julio (9), Mareli (4). Ruby at the age of thirteen is the oldest four children. She is still a child herself, but with her mother on drugs and her grandmother, who was helping her care for her siblings, recently passing away, she has stepped up to be the sole caretaker of the household. Ruby no longer goes to school because she is responsible for taking care of her duties at home and taking care of her younger siblings. Caring Hearts has helped by fixing their house that burned down and pays their gas and medical bills.
