“Even through tragedy, you make the best of friends, in the most unlikely circumstances.”
--Tamara Strong, Isaiah's grandma
Hey! My name is Erin Vega. I am married to Vincent and have two beautiful sons named Isaiah and Vincent. I am also blessed by my stepson, Joshua. I always said I could never imagine my life without any of these boys. This is now my reality. October 23, 2014, Isaiah died in a hit and run accident. I gave birth to Isaiah when I was only 18 years old. You can say we grew up together. Losing Isaiah has been like losing a limb. I am crippled and emotional but not dead. The point of this is that I still have children, a husband, family and community that needs me to keep pushing forward. I am here to stand up and make a difference. If It helps the life of just one, then mission accomplished! Isaiah was a light in this dark world, blessing every person he came in contact with. He cared deeply for others and often put them before himself. It is our turn to step into his shoes. Please join us on this journey as we bring about community change and protect our children.
Hello! My name is Denise. I'm a wife, mom, and grandma. My favorite superhero is Batman. I love reading, learning, helping others, and all things beachy. I believe kindness is contagious, and we should all perform random acts of kindness every day. Although I did not know Isaiah personally, he has impacted my life and my heart in the most amazing ways! I am forever grateful to Isaiah's family for sharing "his light" with my family and I. As some of you know, Erin and I have the most unlikely friendship. God's grace, mercy, love, and kindness brought us together to forever honor Isaiah. I'm looking forward to making changes and helping families in our communities. I am truly blessed to be a part of Isaiah's Foundation with Erin and you! Together, we will make a difference!
Our mission is to share Isaiah's light by helping those in need and advocating for better community safety for children and their families.
