Casa Luz ("House of Light"), near San Jose, Costa Rica, is a haven for adolescent mothers who come from extreme poverty and have been abused and/or exploited.

Our purpose is to help these young mothers realize that they can have healthy lives, positive social interactions, and a nurturing relationship with their children. Our mission is to help them actualize this possibility by teaching the life skills needed to achieve a productive and independent future.

The home-like environment at Casa Luz is filled with love and acceptance while fostering responsibility and accountability, producing young women who consistently progress toward a brighter future.
