Salvador Ferreira used to dream of a house, a job--the chance for something more than the life his parents eked out for their family in rural Mexico. Today, at 38, he has the job, a family of his own and, this December--if all goes according to schedule--he'll have the house: new, two-story, multiple bedrooms and on Salvador Drive, a street named for him.

Oxnard broccoli harvester Salvador Ferreira knows plenty about hard labor, but he had no idea how much work it would take to build a small batch of homes for farmworkers. In March 2000, he and fellow laborers won a legal battle over the slum conditions of their rental houses. Their victory spurred a plan to raze the ramshackle dwellings and replace them with single-family homes and apartments for those who supply the muscle for Ventura County's $1-billion farm industry.

The little community off Hueneme Road is just a timeworn collection of battered shanties done in by decay and neglect. But Salvador Ferreira, a 35-year-old strawberry picker who moved out of the 1930s-era housing compound three years ago, knows that is about to change. His life will, too.

Salvador Ferreira and his family live among cockroaches and mice. His home, like the dwellings next door, is heavy with the stench of rotting carpets and wood. The plumbing leaks out to the yard where the children play. Ferreira and his neighbors say they have tried to get their landlord to fix the plumbing, refurbish the sagging ceilings and redo exposed electrical wiring--to no avail.
