Alba: Our caring house mom


By Courtney Sullivan

Alba and her husband Oscar have been the house parents at our Breaking Chains building for the past few years, and the value they bring to our BC family is immeasurable. 

Alba is as caring and selfless as they come. She has a joy that radiates from her and a open heart that makes it easy for others to trust her. She has been an especially powerful influence on the young women at BC over the years, serving as a mentor and a confidant. She has helped Dixon navigate the ups and downs of life and school, pushed her to keep going, and rejoiced with her as she finished high school this month. She also has a very special bond with Karen, which is beautiful to watch. Not many people know how to interact with Karen given her language inabilities, but Alba has taken her under her wing and loved her in a remarkable way. 

In addition to her work as a house parent, Alba also volunteers to teach one of our children's Sunday school classes. The kids love her energy, and we are blessed that she takes the time to share the word of God with them each week. 

We have made wonderful memories with Alba during the last few Beach Christmas celebrations, and we look forward to making more this year. Please consider donating to give this deserving house mom a wonderful trip with our BC family!
