On Saturday, February 8, 2014, members of the Rotary Club of Concord-Diablo braved the rain to come out and work at Luxi House, a home that’s being built by Parkhaven Community Church for expectant mothers.

According to Pastor Steve (and Concord-Diablo Rotarian) the home will offer a safe place for expectant mothers who are in the foster care system.  Mothers will also be taught life-skills and encouraged to finish high school and further their education.

Clockwise: Kian Ameli, Pastor Steve, Eric Maldonado, Karen Valles and Shahram Ameli.

The home has been a dream for years, and under construction for a year or so.  This is the second work party our club has participated in at the Luxi House.  Hopefully, the finishing touches will be complete soon, and the licensing process can begin.

Thanks to the Concord-Diablo Rotarians who came out:  Kathy Lafferty, Nancy Glenfield, Jeff Kasper & PEE Edi Birsan (both of whom braved the rain to wire up the outdoor lights), Shahram Ameli, Kian & Anna Ameli, PE Karen Valles and  President Eric Maldonado.
