While the community reels at the horrific mass murder this week of almost her entire family by Gwinnett County mother, Isabel Martinez, there is a surviving child and family burials to consider. The Romero family lived in Gwinnett Estates, a mobile home community in the Loganville area of unincorporated Gwinnett County and the Path Project, an outreach of Graystone Church, has stepped up to help in this family’s time of need. The Romera children were members of the Path Project’s community center in Gwinnett Estates.
Here is how you can help:
- Besides the obvious prayers that surviving 9-year-old Diana Romero needs, the Path Project has set up an emergency fund to help with her medical expenses and any future needs she has. This can be accessed at www.pathproject.org/donate
- Funeral expenses need to be covered for the murdered victims, father Martin Romero, 33, Isabela Martinez, 10, Dacota Romero, 7, Dillan Romero, 4 and Axel Romero, 2. Funeral services will be held in the United States for the family, but their final resting place will be in their native Mexico. You can click or tap on this Gofundme account to help contribute to those expenses. This Gofundme account has the support of the Path Project.
- If you want to send handmade cards of support for Diana Romera as she recovers you can mail them to: Path Project, PO Box 1309, Snellville GA 30078
The Path Project was initially established in Gwinnett Estates by Jim and Melinda Hollingsworth, daughter and son-in-law of Loganville Mayor Dan Curry. It began as the Hope Center, an outreach of Graystone Church, in that community when, back in 2008, the Hollingsworths saw a need to provide hope for children in trailer park communities, many first and second generation Mexican immigrants. It has now grown into an independent organization that works within five mobile park communities in Georgia and one in Tennessee.
