Expanding Family-Style Care in Chihuahua
There are more than 1,500 children living in institutions in the city of Chihuahua. And until a few years ago, institutional care was the only legal option for these kids. But we know this type of environment has damaging physical, developmental and psychological effects. We know that children belong in families.
So let’s do this! Thanks to our partner organization, Familia LightShine, family-style foster care is now available in Chihuahua. And recently, The Hope Effect and Familia LightShine joined forces to get more children into families…and we’d love for you to partner with us!
When you join in, together we’ll be able to TRIPLE the capacity to offer family-style care in Chihuahua. Our combined goal is to expand from 15 to 50 foster families within the next 12 months. Wow!
You can do it! Together, we are changing the way Chihuahua cares for orphans. Will you be a part of this life-changing work?
Dollar A Day Team
For just one dollar a day, you can provide
loving family-style care for an orphaned child.
From the earliest days of The Hope Effect, we have had conversations surrounding the approach we will pursue for our family-style homes.
Through local leadership, alumni involvement, and efficiency, we build self-sustaining orphan care models.
