Three new Children’s Homes

Thanks to the support of our benefactors, this winter we broke ground on 3 homes for our children at the Hogar. Designed for 8 children and a house parent (“Madrina” or “Padrino”), each house has 3-bedrooms, 2 baths, a full kitchen and common space. The goal is to create more family style living. Update: This project has been fully funded by generous benefactors!

Estimated Project Cost $195K $195K $0

Kitchen equipment

Our current kitchen equipment is very old and either not functioning at all or barely functioning. Our goal is to create an industrial kitchen at the Hogar that functions at the most effective level possible in order to meet the needs of our 135 children and young people, caregivers, employees, and neighborhood school children.
