Luis and his wife have a full and busy life with three children. Six months ago, Luis’ mother and father moved in with them after their condo went into foreclosure and was taken back by the bank. Luis’ 1979 Honda was the family’s only means of transportation. When the car had mechanical difficulties, Luis found himself in a difficult and stressful situation. His entire extended family was depending on him. Luis reached out to TJFS for help. One of the agency’s Giving Circles provided the necessary funds to tow his vehicle to a repair shop and assisted with the $400 repair bill. Louis was able to resume the responsibilities of caring for his family, and he did not have to miss work because of transportation issues. This is Luis’ Story of Strength.
