The students, former students, faculty, staff, and friends of the Bush School of Government and Public Service and Texas A&M University sponsored the Ybarra home in honor of President George H.W. and Mrs. Barbara Bush.

We raised the walls on March 2, 2013 in Bryan College Station Habitat for Humanity's Faith subdivision in Bryan, Texas. In May, all seven members of the Ybarra family will move out of their crowded apartment and into their new five-bedroom home. "We are very excited and proud to have a home associated with the president," Andrew Ybarra said.

They receive a no-interest, 20-30 year mortgage with 500 hours of "sweat equity" - a combination of home ownership classes and worksite volunteering.
