We have just opened La Buena Vida House, the first homeless shelter for teen males in Irving, Texas. Community support has been and will continue to be crucial in helping to make life-changing improvements for North Texas teens who might feel as if they have nothing. We are thrilled to announce the grand opening of La Buena Vida House and hope you will come and help us celebrate this milestone.
La Buena Vida Youth Leadership Foundation exists to empower, inspire and educate today’s at-risk and homeless youth to be tomorrow’s business and community leaders. We work to improve the lives of young people in North Texas who are in desperate need of a positive influence in their lives. Through programs that provide leadership development and higher education opportunities, participants see tangible benefits that last a lifetime.
La Buena Vida means “The Good Life.” We strongly believe that all young people deserve the opportunity to achieve their goals and improve their lives. All they need is a positive role model in their lives, and to be equipped with the right life skills, interpersonal skills and life principles. We help homeless youth, teen mothers, at-risk students, the economically disadvantaged and teens without mentors, role models or other positive life influencers.
We do this through a multi-faceted approach that includes group workshops, academic scholarships, housing for homeless teens, and a large network of committed community members eager to make improvements in the lives of young people in North Texas, with an emphasis in Irving.
