How to Make a Difference

What Can I Do?

Each one of us carries the solution to our community’s social challenges. Whether it is homelessness, domestic violence, hunger, joblessness, or family instability, you and I can take a step toward ending someone’s suffering. We can help individuals and families in their journey to lifelong independence.

La Mesita Community Tour

Countless families, men, women, and children do not know where they are going to sleep tonight. It may be a single mom, desperate to keep her children safe.
