Diana Vasquez 

Diana was orphaned at 13 years old when her mother and stepfather were murdered.  She spent much of her adolescence in a group home for girls.  Diana surrendered her life to Jesus Christ when she was 21 years old and God healed her and put a desire in her heart to reach other lost “Diana’s” with the same message of hope in the life-changing power of God’s love and salvation. God has strategically placed her as a School Social Worker in a large public school district where she specializes in reducing the personal and systemic barriers facing foster youth, youth experiencing homelessness, and youth involved in the juvenile justice system, through direct service support, advocacy, and case management.  She has extensive training and experience in crisis counseling with victims of domestic violence, sexual trauma and trafficking. She facilitates Bible studies with women in addiction recovery and her mission is to educate women, youth and children about the God of the Bible and how in and through Christ, their lives can be healed and made whole.  Diana earned her Bachelor’s in Social Work from California State University, Los Angeles, and her Masters in Social Work from University of Southern California.
