Carmela Pacheco served as Co-Executive Director for 37 years alongside her husband, Rev. Jose Pacheco until she went home to be with the Lord in 2009 after a long, hard-fought battle with pancreatic cancer. Together, the Pacheco’s always had a vision to expand the current facility to provide space for more women and children. Our three phase building project is named in memory of Carmela. Currently, Phase I and Phase II are completed, which includes extensive upgrades to the existing structure, as well as new construction providing a computer skills training lab, a family recreational and visitation area, restroom facilities, as well as a fitness room, and a a wing with bedrooms, bathrooms, a common living room area, and two spacious dedicated classrooms, and a library space. The last and final phase is set to begin November of 2023 at a cost of $516, 239.13. Please help Carmela’s Dream move forward to completion by donating today!
