Speaker: Lilian Ferrer
As a young woman, Lilian told people she would run two houses – one for children who had no place to live and another for all the dogs and cats on the street. Now she is more commonly known as “Tia Lily” and has rescued pets at home along with running Esperanza y Futuro- A beautiful temporary shelter for girls and adolescents who are victims of trafficking and sexual abuse. Her passion is what she does, serving these young women, with love and empathy. Her life has taught her many tough, difficult lessons that have molded her to who she is now. She has the strength to be there for the young women as they cry about their current and past situations. Esperanza y Futuro is a Family where, regardless of how long the young people are, education, values, guidance are given to prepare them for life change.
Thanks to the IW, both the staff and Lilian, we have learned to understand more about trauma and how to handle it. It has been a blessing to have Integrous Women working with the Esperanza y Futuro community as we now feel more confident with managing difficult situations thanks to workshops provided during IW visits to Guatemala and ongoing assistance.
