before she went to university
Gabriela stayed at Dorcas House until her fourth semester at high school, when she was able to go back and live with her mother. She finished school and went on to study educational psychology at CESUN university in Tijuana. Helping Gabriela complete university was important to Dorcas House so they helped fund her university studies. Gabriela completed her degree in December and in January she will become Dorcas House’s first university graduate. If that was the end of this story it would be a great ending but it is only the beginning.
Gabriela is now looking for work as an educator working with special needs children. We recently caught up with Gabriela when she was at Dorcas House. Asked why she had come back she simply said “I never really left.” Today she comes back to the house to help Yajaira with her home schooling. Yajaira has been at Dorcas House for about a year and suffers from a liver condition that prevents her from going to school. Without the dedication and hard work of Gabriela she would not be able to read and write.

From all of the children of Dorcas House, ¡Gracias.
