Family Story:

Yasmin is a single mother of three children: Yulitze Guadalupe is 15 years old, Victoria Noemi is 4 years old, and Jose Christian is 2 years old. She is originally from Victoria, Tamaulipas on the East of Mexico. She separated from her husband because she suffered from abuse.

Yasmin's ex-husband is under military arrest in Mexico City, which is why she does not receive any child support from him, and it has been one year since she has had to work in a packaging center Monday through Saturday making min. $56 USD approx. per week. Yasmin has to administer that amount to buy food, clothes, and water, and sometimes it's not enough, on top of that the kids are growing and they are living in a trailer that is being loaned to them.

There is also another family living with them, a mother, Teresa Guadalupe, who also has three children. They are Yasmin's friends and have been Christians for five years. The reason they live with Yasmin and her family is that when they met, they were having the same type of abuse and they supported each other. They have been living together with both families in the same place now for a year.

It is Yasmin's desire to be able to have a safe home for her children to be able to offer them a place of which they can be proud. About a year and a half ago, they were robbed in their little place, and since then, her prayers have been that they could live in a safe place.
