WHY OUR DONORS GIVE

As an elementary school principal, I am proud to be an ongoing donor for La Luz because I subscribe to their mission of helping families live better lives.  I am so impressed with their menu of services and support through their family services, programs for economic advancement, and community engagement.  La Luz’s ability to improve outcomes for families is inspiring!

CLIENT

STORY

 Sandra worked as a Certified Nurses Assistant (CNA) for over ten years until March of last year. She was diagnosed with COVID-19 and was let go of her position and needed to find work after she recovered. She called La Luz Center and found an opportunity to work for a family as their housekeeper. She has been given an opportunity to grow and be paid more than the previous job that only gave her a raise twice. Sandra became more financially stable and signed up for La Luz Center's online construction course through Sonoma County Adult Education. Today, she is taking courses through Sonoma Immigrant Services to apply for her Citizenship.
