WE ARE BLESSED.
We are blessed in so many ways. Water to drink, clean new clothes, resources and most of all the gift of being born in America. With those gifts comes great responsibility. Using those gifts to Change The World is what we are all about.
The kids in our community are just like any other.. except that, they were born to poor families, in a poor neighborhood, with little to no opportunity, generations of familiy members with no education and a country that systematically makes it difficult for young people to escape the cycle of poverty.

Abby and JJ Williams are the founders of Lantern Hill. After traveling to Ensenada 10 years ago as leaders on several service trips, their lives were changed. They knew they wanted to give others this same life-changing opportunity. They sold everything they owned in Los Angeles, CA moved to Ensenada, Mexico and in 2007 “Lantern Hill” was born.
They created Lantern Hill to respond to the most basic needs of every human; Lantern Hill is a place that loves, cares and educates children and families in Baja California, Mexico. In 2009 Abby and JJ began their family by adopting a special family of five Mexican children and having a baby in 2010. After years of completing the adoption, getting all the necessary paperwork, all 8 of them now live in Henderson, Nevada.
