SEE MIGUEL'S STORY:
Miguel* came to The Salvation Army Children’s Home along with his brother and sister from a home that was little more than a shelter with blankets for walls. The majority of his neighbors work at the dump, rummaging through trash in hopes of finding plastic and glass to sell and earn a meager living from. Poverty is the reality for those from Miguel’s neighborhood.
Since moving to The Salvation Army Children’s Home, Miguel has been given the opportunity to experience the sort of childhood most of us take for granted. These “luxuries” to Luis include three nutritious meals a day, clean clothing, medical and dental support, a safe environment, support to go to school and receive an education, and daily morning devotions developing him spiritually. By the end of his first year at The Salvation Army Children’s Home, Miguel had a new vision for his future. A future where he is free to laugh and learn and grow as a child of God.
The Salvation Army Children’s Home in Mazatlán offers hope for the 40 children who reside there. Some of the children, like Miguel, have been placed in the Children’s Home by Child Protective Services due to neglect or abuse in their home or because they have been orphaned. Often, the children are from single parent homes where the mother has a difficult time providing for the needs of her children. The Salvation Army Children’s Home is a safe environment for these children and invests in their lives with physical, emotional, and spiritual care.
The 40 children living at the Children’s Home in Mazatlán have been given a brighter future because of the opportunities they now have in the care of this home. Funds to run the home are limited in Mazatlán. Your support is needed for this life changing work to continue. Be a part of investing in the futures of these children by giving out of a heart of love, compassion, and generosity.
*For the privacy and dignity of the children we serve, the actual name of the child has been changed. His story has not been altered.
(All transactional and administrative costs have been covered by a generous donation. 100% of your gift will go directly to the program.)
