A Milestone Achieved: Blocks Delivered!

Thanks to your incredible generosity during our December fundraiser, we’ve not only met but surpassed our goals. The concrete blocks needed to build the second-floor walls at Casa de Los Angeles have been purchased and delivered. Yes, you read that right! We have the blocks, thanks to you!

Each one of these blocks represents a step towards a safer, more secure future for the children and families we serve. It’s a tangible testament to what we can achieve together.

Constructing Hope and Stability

The urgency of building the south wall cannot be overstated. Not only will it form the foundation of our second story, but it will also act as a crucial retaining wall. This will prevent further erosion of the street, safeguarding the community and our facility against the forces of nature.

As a stark reminder of what’s at stake, I’ve included a photo of a concrete power pole, just 30 feet east of CDLA, that fell over after the ground beneath it softened in the rain. Thankfully, no one was injured, and our power grid remained intact, but it underscores the pressing need for the retaining wall.

Looking Ahead 

Your support has brought us this far, and we are just getting started. The blocks are here, and now it’s time to build—build walls, build futures, build hope. We are more committed than ever to creating a safe haven for at-risk children and their families, and with you by our side, we know it’s possible.

A Heartfelt Thank You

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your unwavering support, your generosity, and your belief in our mission. Together, we are making a profound difference in the lives of those we serve.

Stay tuned for updates as we turn these blocks into the foundations of a brighter future.

P.S. The journey continues, and every step we take is one we take together. Thank you for being a crucial part of this journey.

P.P.S. On a lighter note, after a hard day’s work and site visits, we always make time for some of the best tacos you’ll ever taste—right here in Rosarito. Check out the attached photo of the mouth-watering tacos we enjoyed last time. It’s just a taste of the local flavor you’ll experience when you visit CDLA. We’d love to share a meal (and some smiles) with you. Consider this an open invitation to come see the incredible work you’re supporting firsthand… and to join us for tacos afterward!
