We had recently brought our kids to Rosarito because in the south, in Veracruz where we’re from, there is so much violence and unemployment. There are no jobs or resources to lead a reliable life, sometimes not even to have food. Now we have our own house and everyone in our family has found a job. We now have a much more reliable life, sometimes we even have the luxury to buy milk or yogurt which we never could buy in the South. I am so grateful that Casas de Luz has blessed me with something so valuable.
Our home has helped my family and I feel safe and not feel so exposed. With the death of my father, our old room felt unprotected. It has also allowed us to have our own personal space and not live in an overcrowded room. For me personally it has helped with my studies because a lot of times I stay up late to study and when I shared a room with my mom and sister, they weren’t able to sleep and rest well because I had to have the lights turned on and made a little bit of noise. In general for the three of us we are so grateful for our new home where we feel so safe to live.
Casas de Luz filled me and my family with happiness and blessings the day that God put you in my path. When my house burned down and my son, grandchildren, and husband were left with nothing, God sent Casas de Luz to us to give us happiness and a beautiful church. Casas de Luz made us so happy and I want to thank everyone.
It was so amazing for our family to have what we desired and thank you to Casas de Luz, our dream was made into a reality. We are so happy in our new home!
It was a beautiful experience watching people who build a home for others without even knowing them. It was beautiful to see that they were helping us have somewhere to live and spend time as a family in our own home.
The experience of receiving a house was an answer to my prayers. We are so happy because we now have a roof under which we can be with our children. Our new home has allowed us to have our own space to have more time as a family, especially because we used to live with my mother. It’s so special to be able to have your own home in your house.
*If you would like to attend a home build you can sign up by emailing Casas de Luz and will be put on a waiting list. We will inform you on our availability for volunteers.
