In 2016, Nydia Correa learned about the mission of The Guiding Star Project and recognized it as the solution to meet these changing needs of women’s healthcare in El Paso, but was lacking support for her idea and prayed for help with vision-casting and fundraising. Meanwhile, just 40 miles away, Mark Cavaliere had been praying for someone with the ability and experience to launch a Guiding Star center for the Borderland region. They finally and providentially met in March 2017, immediately partnering and joining each other’s Boards of Directors, working together to convert House of Hope into the nation’s sixth Guiding Star affiliate.
