My Story

Jose Luis, and his younger brother Angel, are the children of single mother, Yesenia. They have been a part of the CDL family since the fall of 2019. Jose Luis is a very friendly little boy who has loved spending his days at CDL. Jose Luis can often be found playing a board game, like Monopoly, with one of the other CDL boys in his class. Jose Luis is in grade 6 this year and looks forward to next year when he will begin middle school as part of CDL’s Youth Mentorship Program.

Jose Luis’ mother Yesenia came to CDL asking for help with her sons after she separated from her husband. Yesenia works at a local craft store and dreams of one day owning her own home for increased stability for her children. Yesenia is part of CDL’s Education Completion Program and is working towards finishing her middle school education with us. Her dream is to continue studying after she graduates from middle school so that she can give a better life to her children.

We are so thankful to have Jose Luis, Angel and Yesenia as part of the CDL family. Please pray for Yesenia, that God would heal her heart from all that she’s been through and give her the strength and wisdom that she needs each day in raising her sons.
