The beginning of 2021 looks much different than in previous years. However, we are blessed to continue finding ways to serve God in the communities to bring light and hope. Today we are hearing from Amalfi Toribio, our Women’s Social Work site leader in Santiago, Dominican Republic.

Providing a safe space for outreach has been Amalfi’s priority at the Social Work Site in the Los Mangos Community in Cienfuegos, Santiago. It’s a space she has created with the passion that characterizes her. Today, in this community, families face challenges on different fronts; some children even grow up on the streets without parental supervision for various reasons. Today, the adolescent girls and women of Los Mangos call this place their home.
