Juan Avila, center, is congratulated by a friend after he and his wife, Maria, not pictured, received the keys to their new home during the grand opening ceremony for Milagro Place on Thursday afternoon in Immokalee. Seven of 26 homes, constructed through the Empowerment Alliance of Southwest Florida and National Development of America, were dedicated in the subdivision that was made possible through $750,000 in grants for the purchase of the land and installation of infrastructure. Additionally, $1.3 million in loans was used to subsidize the prices to make them affordable to very low-income households.
