The holidays are an invitation to come home and feel safe with those we love. We share meals, laughs, and traditions. We share home — the place that writes our story.
Alejandra lives with her single mom and has always wanted to be a lawyer.
Despite working under leaky roofs and on a dirt floor, she was always a straight-A student. Her mom proudly displayed her academic certificates and motivated her to keep studying hard.
Because of donors like you, Alejandra now has a safe home where she can focus entirely on her studies.
She is studying law and will graduate from university in 2024.

The Limas were six months pregnant when they moved into their new, safe home.
On November 1, 2019, the Limas welcomed their baby boy into their stable home, making Jeffrey the first child born into the thriving community of Ahuachapán 2.
Where unsafe shelter would have stripped Jeffrey’s opportunity to flourish in his education, health, and dreams, the sustainable community of Ahuachapán 2 is providing him with the environment that only empowers him to grow into his potential.

Blanca recently received her keys to her new home and finally moved off the streets after three years of homelessness.
Blanca shares that her nine-year-old son, Israel, had a pair of monster slippers he kept for the one day they moved into safe and clean housing. He couldn’t wear them on the dirty streets. The second they opened the door of their new home, he switched to the slippers.
According to Blanca, he didn’t take them off for the next 48 hours.
“I felt so relieved and happy once they gave me the key. I finally feel like my sons have a future. When I’m not here, they will have this place to stay safe.”
