Save One Life,
With hearts for service, Mike and Beckie Pérez had been praying for an opportunity to make an impact in San Diego's East County where they both grew up. In 2013 they were given inspiration to stand in the gap for an underserved and vulnerable population--women in unplanned pregnancies. The 29:Eleven Maternity Home was created under Imago Dei Ministries in 2014 and opened its doors in the Spring of 2017.
Mike is a fourth generation San Diegan. He graduated from Valhalla High School, Stanford University and the UCLA School of Law. Mike has been practicing law as a trial attorney for 27 years, both in civil law firms and for nearly a decade as a federal prosecutor with the Department of Justice. For the past 12 years, Mike has been the Managing Partner of PEREZ VAUGHN & FEASBY. Mike coaches Little League, Youth Football, and high school wrestling at St. Augustine.
Beckie is also a San Diego native who graduated from Santana High School, San Diego State University, University of Phoenix and Walden University. For several years she taught elementary school in El Cajon before resigning from her position to dedicate her full time efforts toward establishing the 29:Eleven Maternity Home.
Mike and Beckie have four amazing children. Tony just completed his freshman year at the University of Notre Dame, Jacqui is a 13 year old in seventh grade, Michael is a 7 year old first grader, while 3 year old Ezekiel spends his days at his mother's side. They are blessed and grateful.
