My Story

Luis is the oldest of four children from single Mother Violeta. He and his younger brothers and sister have attended CDL since 2013. Luis attends CDL's Youth Mentorship Program with his brother Isaac, and his younger brother Yair and sister Andoeni are in CDL's children’s program. Luis is also in CDL’s Scholarship Program. He receives a scholarship which allows him to continue his high school education. Luis is a very friendly and responsible young man who is an incredibly hard worker. In many ways, Luis has taken on the role of the “man of the house” and provides a great deal of care for his younger siblings. Luis’ Mom Violeta came to Casa de Luz asking for help in the fall of 2013, after she separated from her husband. Initially, Violeta and the children went through an extremely difficult time as she struggled to provide for 4 children on her own. Since they have come to CDL, however, Violeta and her children have finally found the stability that they so desperately needed in their lives. Violeta told us that her dream is that she would "continue to give my children peace and security, so that I can support my children however I can and provide for my family." When we interviewed Violeta and gave her the news that her children would be accepted into Casa de Luz, she was overwhelmed and cried tears of thankfulness! She is also enrolled in our on-site English as a Second Language program and is working towards learning English with us. Violeta asks that you would be praying for her, that God would give her strength to keep moving forward and the strength to keep working as hard as she can for her family.
