Meet our Local Hero

Mariluz first heard about the saving love of Jesus at the age of 10, made the decision to accept Him as her personal Savior, and started being mentored by a local church through Youth With A Mission (YWAM). During this time, her passion for telling others about Jesus grew, and her calling of working for the Kingdom by reaching children and communities became more clear. In 2005, Mariluz graduated from dental school and used her knowledge and skill set to serve through ministries that not only aided communities, but also presented the Gospel. In 2008, Maruiluz began working at VisionTrust Dominicana, and in 2017 she became the Country Director.

A Quick Look At Our Impact in the Dominican Republic

Year VisionTrust Started Partnering: 1997

# of Programs: 13

# of Children Served: 2,125+

# of In-Country Staff/Volunteers: 245

VisionTrust Dominicana programs are a sample of all the different kinds of ministries we partner with to reach the neediest children. In the DR we have schools (including a special school for deaf children), Learning Centers, and Transitional Homes for children at risk. Most of the programs are in the capital city where the vast majority live. However, we are also reaching children on the border of Haiti, and in more rural areas such as the center of the island were the rice plantations are located. VisionTrust Dominicana provides children with the necesary tools for them to be transformed into mature Christians who live for God and love others.
