Juan Avila, center, and his wife, Maria, left, stand in front of their new home after receiving the keys 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 by $750,000 in grants for the purchase of the land and installation of infrastructure and $1.3 million in loans used to subsidize the prices of the homes to make them affordable to very low-income households. Mortgages on the homes are about $85,000 for a three-bedroom and $90,000 for a four-bedroom.
