Single Mother, 2 Children
Playing video games and with action figures
Jose and his younger brother Kevin have been a part of CDL since the winter of 2020. Jose is a very kind and warm boy who has settled well into life at CDL and made good friends in his class. His favorite color is blue, he loves to play video games and with his superhero action figures. Jose's Mom Cristina came to Casa de Luz asking for help in the winter of 2020, after she was unexpectedly widowed. Cristina had never worked outside of her home, and she had recently started working at a restaurant owned by CDL Mom Marilu. Since she had no one to care for her sons while she worked, she came to CDL to ask for help. Since that time, however, Cristina has gone through a difficult season and the boys are now living with their aunts. Already, the love, support, and stability that CDL has provided for Jose has been transformational in his life, and we are continuing to walk closely alongside him now that he is living with his aunts. We are so thankful that God has given us the opportunity to partner with this family.
