2018 Fourth Annual Guardian House Luncheon Honoree

 

Texas House Representative, Diego Bernal, was born in South Texas and brought up in San Antonio. Among many contributions to helping people, his servant-heart began when he was a social worker in the Detroit area and continued after law school where he helped many underprivileged families.

Representative Bernal stated,

“True public servants dedicate passion, effort, and attention to all citizens in their care. Guardian House exemplifies this through the education and assistance they provide to families who need someone to look out for them during difficult times. In every service they provide, Guardian House has the best interest of parents and children at heart.

Representative Bernal was recognized as one of San Antonio’s Men of the Year in 2010 due to his commitment to enhancing the lives of the people – not just in San Antonio but throughout Texas. In February 2015, Representative Bernal was elected to the Texas House of Representatives. Now as one of our state representatives, Bernal can push for positive change that impacts everyone in Texas.

He and his wife, Elyse Bernal, welcomed their first child, Xan, in August 2017.

Guardian House is honoring Representative Bernal for his contribution to the children in Bexar county on March 26, 2018 at Pearl Stable.  Click here to see your invitation.
