I have read a lot of negative comments as well as positive ones. All I could say is that the blessings come from up above! If the family is lying they have to deal with God. It is not your problem or mines! It is not your place to judge! Those of you with the negatives comments: "YOU NEED JESUS", try Him he's awesome!!! I am extremely happy for the family and the city of Camden. There are good things happening in Camden. We're just the "labeled city"! God bless the team of Exteme Makeover, all the helpers, the contractors & Urban Promise for your passion, kindness and love in helping others in need! And to the Marreo family, God bless you. Appreciated the blessing God as poured upon you and never forget that HE made it happened! AWESOME!!!

for MAD HATER..why would you think it would be robbed..because it is not in cherry hill, morristown, medford, voorhees, etc.? they rob every where...and if you were following the story it is not in camden it is pennsauken..just be happy for the family....be happy that someone was blessed with a new home and that his children were blessed with educations.....
Yeah, Thanks Lab-Partner. I am well aware that robbery happens everywhere... Now, pull your protractor back out, and figure out the "CRIME" and "Robbery" RATE. And yes, we all need JESUS... But, in CAMDEN, you need him most!!! Alarm system? HA! Alarm systems don't "prevent" B&Es, they just reduce the odds...but, with all that nice stuff... Lets wait and see....

And for the "correction" that it was Pennsauken -- Thanks for the tip.... Pennsauken, the new Camden.
And, I'm not jealous you idiots, I am extremely happy for the family and believe they deserve it. As I said, I just would not have put them in Camden -- That would have been topping on the cake.

My mom used to always say to us, if people have nothing good to say about other people, then they should just keep their comments to them selves. However alot of us realize that some people just have to put their negative two cents in for whatever reasons. To those people I say, don't become part of Camdens issues, become a part of the solution to resolve these issues in Camden. To those of you that come into my city from your surburban towns to purchase drugs and other illegal stuff, you are just a bad as the people you buy that stuff from. As for the Marrero family, you deserve every bit of this good fortune. May the lord continue to bless the Marrero family. Julius from Camden

To Mad Hater: I'm from Cherry Hill and if you pick up some of our police reports we have robberies too. I'm sure you're concerned for the Marrero Family's safety but most of us in the world like hearing positive talk and not always negative ones. Be happy and look at all the good things around you.

Congratulations. Now again, my good sheep, as I said, compare "Rates" --- the fact we all have "Robberies" is irrelavent.

I saw the 20/20 special on the camden kids and it brung tears to my eyes. Ive lived in camden 22yrs (all my life). And its hard seeing my city being protrayed this way, and its even harder seeing young children go through the things those kids go through. So, if 1 needy family in camden nj can get a helping hand, so be it. GOD BLESS THEM ALL!!!.... Camden, would be so much more different if we all helped each other, instead of trying to step on eachothers toes. Camden needs as much help as it can get.

Camden had the highest crime rate for two years in a row. It's about time that we start have positive news about us. I Love my city, my hood . But im sick and tired of all the people thinking that every camden nj resident is a "drug dealer, criminal, lowlife, etc etc." Life is what you make out of it. And the Marrero Family took all those negatives and turned them into positives. Hopefully, those 5 young camden men, will motivate more camden nj young men to hep change our city around.

GOOD FOR YOU. I am willing to change my outlook, and I appreciate your spirit and resolve. Now, like I always say, "It your city, your "Hood", your home!---NOW FIX IT!" I am tired of watching camden & other poor city's residents, being interviewed on the evening news, asking "...what are the cops (& city) gonna do to fix this violence and crime/drug problem?" They're gonna do what they have been doing, NOTHING. Take charge, take back your city, DO SOMETHING!!!!
