My Story

Cristian is one of 3 children of single Mother, Cristina. His older sisters, Vanessa and Melissa, are a part of CDL's Youth Mentorship Program. Cristian is a very active, energetic and fun boy. He is also a very talented soccer player and can usually be seen on the soccer field with the CDL boys, riding a scooter, or playing with Lego! Cristina, Cristian, and his sisters Vanessa and Melissa, arrived at CDL in October 2011, shortly after we opened. Cristina had escaped a physically abusive relationship a few years before and was starting to put the pieces of her life back together. Cristina has a job cleaning condominiums and is an incredibly hard worker. She has been through a lot of turmoil in her life but she has come a long way in her journey toward wholeness and healing during her time with us at Casa de Luz. In March 2014, Cristina and her children were accepted into our Own Your Own Home Program, and are now living in a safe, new home! God has brought so much positive change in their family and we look forward to seeing what else He has in store for them!
