House of Light and Hope
For most of our girls this is their first experience living in a safe house and it is here they begin their journey toward restored freedom and healing. We welcome girls as young as 4 years old into our family and it is our privilege to love them, provide for them, and dream with them as we would our own daughters!
The moment our girls walk through our doors they begin their journey of transformation. Our heart is to provide for each of them as our daughters, working to meet all their physical, emotional, spiritual and academic needs. We are determined to walk alongside and encourage them to listen to the still small voice of a very big God who has divine plans for their future. We are committed to loving them in every decision, weeping with them in their sadness and rejoicing with them in their gladness. We celebrate each and every milestone, breakthrough, healing and dream our girls step into. Every single one is a miracle!
La Casa De Luz y Esperanza a.k.a. The House of Light and Hope is where we take up residence. It is the home we prayed for since the very beginning when we were still in the barrio in a space with dirt floors and zero running water. We now live in a space where our girls are able to create, learn, grow and explore what it means to live in a place marked by security, trust and consistency.
This is our first house we like to call our "Mansion on the Hill". This is where we began. Donated by a local woman with six months of her salary, we knew we had to be faithful with this sacrificial gift of love. With dirt floors, zero running water, a walk up that was both treacherous and impossible to navigate in the rain. We loved it there. But we knew from the very start it was only temporary. It continues to serve as part of our story and is where our weekly outreach takes place in order to continue discipling and mentoring girls from the barrio we started in.
