Sylvia came to Leon Guanajuato Mexico in May of 2010, with a dream of building a local church focused on strengthening families. She has served in ministry with her husband Jeff for more than 20 years. She is a pastor, women’s speaker, and a mom to 6 amazing kids. Casa Arbol is a labor of love for Sylvia that was born from serving in so many impoverished, violent, and neglected neighborhoods in Central Mexico. The plight of so many children, many without a family support system, broke her heart and spurred her to act. Casa Arbol is her dream in providing children who are broken, neglected, and abandoned, the opportunity to find a loving home that is fully invested in the care and success of each child in their care. .
