About Anthony

Despite both parents working full-time, a day laborer and a baker, the Carrasco family struggled to overcome the hardships of homelessness for over ten years in an urban high cost Southern California housing market. Moving every couple of months to a new motel, Anthony's grandmother took care of the three Carrasco boys after school, taught them about tea, art, and cheeses, and always believed they deserved better opportunities than life had afforded them. Tragically, the biggest impact she left on the boys was her untimely death. She developed stomach cancer and passed away within six months. Leaving the family $15,000, they relocated to an affordable rural housing market in Northern California where Anthony was able to attend the same school for more than a year and get a chance at a quality public education.
