Although we receive no financial support from the Mexican government, we do work closely with them. 90% of the children that we care for are brought to us by Mexican Social Services. We have very few true orphans. Many of our kids have been abandoned or come from abusive homes some are with us because their parents simply can no longer care for them. If the children are here due to financial hardship, we encourage their parents to come visit their children as often as they can. Occasionally the children are able to return to their families if it has been determined that they are able to care for them.
All our support comes in the form of donations for the US. We work with churches, corporations, and service organizations. The majority of our funding comes from individuals with a desire to help the children. Less than 3% of our budget is used for fundraising.
We are a 501Â©3 non-profit organization and are able to accept tax-deductible charity donations. Such donations can be money (contributions, sponsorships, etc) or goods. We are happy to provide a receipt for all donations. In the case of goods, our receipt can be used to show what you donated, but not to establish its value for your tax return.. Tax ID #41-2063114
