Mi Casa for Children and Elderly provides aid to homes in Mexico that care for children who have been abandoned, abused neglected or orphaned as well as homes that care for abandoned elderly.
In San Antonio, we continue to inspire the spirit of volunteerism by having taken hundreds of volunteers to these homes to offer their services on week-long service trips.
In Mexico, 46% of the population lives in poverty with one out of ten persons living in extreme poverty. It is a country where violence and instability breaks apart families and makes these homes so necessary. Mi Casa provides vital support to the homes when it is most needed. The children and elderly are given the opportunity to live out their lives in dignity.
Founded in 2002, Mi Casa for Children and Elderly provides aid to “casas hogar” (foster homes, nursing homes and orphanages) that care for about 550 children and elderly in the states of Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León and Queretaro.
Since its inception, Mi Casa has:
- Coordinated 18 service trips with 251 short term volunteers to provide renovations and complete maintenance projects for the homes and vision exams to provide eyeglasses for the children.
- Recruited, trained, placed and supported 30 volunteers who serve for a year caring for children and elderly.
- Provided over $1.5 million in funds and services to homes offering vital services to disadvantaged children and elderly of Mexico.
Mi Casa’s Mission Statement: To transform lives of disadvantaged children and elderly by providing resources, support and volunteer opportunities.
