    Dear Marrero family,

    I just finished watching your touching story on Extreme Makover Home Edition. It’s truly refreshing to see people working together to help one another. Mr. Marrero, you are a strong man. What you are doing for your community through Single fathers of Camden is amazing. I wish you, your family and the single fathers all the best.

      Marrero family,

      You are so blessed to have a father that loves you and is so much involved in your lives. I am a single Mom and I know all about how hard it is to raise children on your own. I had 8 and only 4 are living with me now. I wish there was a program like yours here in San Antonio, Texas for both single Moms and Dads. Your story was so inspiring!

    Dear Mr. Merrero,
    what a amazing father you are and the impact
    you have made to your family and your community. You have shown everyone what a difference one person can make with love for your kids and others the perseverence with your
    having God in your heart is evident. Extreme makeover is soo great to pick a person such as you to show america this is what it should be about. Not so much as a beautiful home but inside the beautiful home a family who is of love for each other and there community. I know the struggles of being a single parent the importance
    that your children may feel missing a father the anger they may have towards a parent blaming you for their loss. Not always did it seem important for them to have their father since he seemed so out of control. Especially if their on
    drugs or alcohol. I had my grandson rewind extreme makeover just to see that there are good daddys since he doesn’t feel that way towards his dad. As I shared this story to my son he got tears in his eyes I know why even though he never said a word. I just bought a house after sleeping in a car living in a motor home, buying a modular home finally were in a house with our own back yard. Me, and my family are so greatful. I thank God for my job and pray to keep my health. Thank you, extreme makeover for making it happen for this man and his boys. Once I get settled in my house I will start buying some T-shirts to help support the urban promise. It would be a great thing to have this type of program all over to help men be better dads. Everyone can be a father but it takes someone special to be a daddy. I would have loved to know the love of a dad and you have done a great job with your boys. I hope my daughter will meet a nice boy like your sons someday. To all your sons keep doing good keep your dad feeling proud. It’s nice to see you appreciate his hard work most kids don’t appreciate that. If there’s something I may be able to help with let me know. Take care JoAnn

    I just saw the extreme makeover program which started assistance for the Marrero family. It was very encouraging and emotional. I would also like to help if I can. I have been a seeing eye dog trainer and then owner of a successful dog training business and kennel business. I started as a veterinarian’s assistant and kennel boy at 14 yrs old in order to help my single parent mother. I became very successful in the dog training field and am now retired. If any of the young men or ladies of Camden and other devastated areas do not want to go the ‘college route’; but wish to become self employed and productive business owners and adults; if they have the desire to put in the work and time, I am willing to become a mentorand I would be willing to share my almost 50 years of experience to instruct them in becoming professional dog trainers and/or kennel managers. This is my way of thanking God for the opportunity which I was afforded as a young man. Please contact me at my enclosed e mail address at Edgewater, NJ if I can be of any assistance. Regards and best wishes.

    I really can’t put into words how your story has touched me. I’m not in your city I’m in charlotte nc but I want to meet you and your boys so bad. I just started a non profit organization called Another Opportunity Club. For young men to learn about respect and decipline and always brother hood. Please find a way for me to keep intouch with your family please email me at I know your show aired in 2007 but I’m just seeing it today I love you and your family. I never had a dad in my life but if I did I would want him to be just like you
