A family of four, Guadalupe lives with her husband and two daughters. After both she and her partner lost their jobs due to COVID, Guadalupe's family struggled financially, and their daughters experienced difficulties navigating an entirely new virtual school experience. Her youngest, Sophia, was facing emotional turmoil, which affected her sleep, eating, and mental state. After finding no other recourse, Guadalupe turned to the Gang Reduction & Youth Development (GRYD) program at Bresee where she found the support she and her youngest daughter required. GRYD provided her daughter with counseling sessions and mentorship, and after a period of time, Guadalupe noticed a marked improvement in Sophia's behavior. Excellent work, Bresee!
Our partners at the Bresee Foundation distributed altar kits to families to provide them with the means to celebrate Dia de los Muertos at home.
