“..our residents give us more than we can ever give them.”

Mission matters to mother-son team Mariela Cardenas and Luis Lantigua. When this dynamic duo report to work, they know they’re making a real difference in the lives of Broadway House residents.

Yet, it’s a two-way street—our residents have also had a profound impact on the lives of Mariela and Luis. “Our residents are a blessing to me,” says Luis, a college student who works part-time at Broadway House. “I know life hasn’t been easy for them, but they’re still happy. They inspire me.”

Mariela joined Broadway House working in the activities department and quickly embraced the facility’s mission. Now an assistant in the business office, she adds, “I feel very blessed to work in a place where I can help people. Everyone here is so kind. What our residents don’t know is that they give us more than we can ever give them.”
