What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Our MISSION is rescuing children and youth suffering from abuse, poverty, neglect, crime and abandonment by providing shelter, food, clothing, education, medical attention and opportunity for success.

Casa Hogar Los Angelitos (CHLA), is a full-time children's home in Manzanillo, Mexico, funded through TCF. This children's home is for homeless, abandoned, orphaned and abused children. CHLA gives children emotional, mental and physical care, educational opportunities and a spiritual and moral foundation. CHLA programs are provided in a home atmosphere, designed to instill positive and productive attributes to permanently change the circumstances of these children. Our programs help build the children's self-esteem and develop a life with hope and opportunity.

To date we have a student who has been at Casa Hogar Los Angelitos for 9 years graduating for the University in the Dental field. We have three other students who are graduating high school and entering the University as well. We have a successful Expressive Arts program in our Ballet Folklorico, the kids are trained in cultural dances and perform internationally, proceeds from these performances help to keep the Expressive Arts program active. We average about 90 children who live full time in the Casa Hogar Los Angelitos.

With kids growing up and graduating from high school and college, we believe this is making progress.
We continue to work diligently for support, sponsorship, donations and contributions.

We still need more sponsors and contributors. We have the potential to reach out to so many more kids in need. We just need the funding and support.
