Casino Night Photo Gallery

We are extremely grateful for everyone who came out to support us at the 7th Annual Bienvenidos Casino Night on Saturday, September 20th,2014 at the TCL Chinese Theatre. With a crowd of over 200, we danced the night away and raised much needed awareness to the work that Bienvenidos does.

September: Fall into Autumn

Hope In Unexpected Places

Jessica was working the drive thru window at a fast food restaurant when she caught the attention of a Bienvenidos employee. Our Family Specialist was struck by the sorrow and stress that seemed to lurk behind this expectant mother’s pleasant demeanor, and offered her business card and an opportunity for hope.

The following day Jessica entered Project Corazón, a support and family strengthening program. Faced with stress, housing struggles, and financial woes, Jessica found guidance and an outlet for her worries at Bienvenidos. Jessica found so much worth in the program that she helped her friend, also in a similar situation, enroll in the program.

Now that they’ve settled into family life, Jessica is working part-time and has returned to school, training to become a medical assistant. She adores her daughter, and is happy to have the support and resources she needs to secure a future for them both.
