It’s no small feat to change the way the world cares for orphans…it takes a lot of passionate individuals working together toward a common goal. You’re a huge part of the team – you are making a difference through your generosity and support. And because of your partnership, The Hope Effect is pioneering and expanding family-style care in several locations in Mexico and Honduras.
But there’s another group we can’t do this without…the incredible families who open their homes and their hearts to care for children. And we have exciting news – earlier this month, more families joined the movement in Chihuahua, Mexico!
In April, we told you about our partnership with Familia LightShine, an organization aiming to expand family-style foster care in Chihuahua. We’re working hand-in-hand with Familia LightShine to get more children into families, and by joining forces we can triple the capacity to offer family-style care. Our combined goal is to expand to 50 foster families over the next several months…and thanks to you, we’re well on our way!
This month, seven additional families were certified by the government to provide foster care in Chihuahua. That means we now have 20 families now providing loving, family-style care for a total of 22 children. We’re so grateful for these families…and for your generous support that makes it all possible.
After going through the training and approval process, the seven families were celebrated and certified at an event put on by the government. At the certification ceremony, the families officially welcomed the children into their homes.
It was a wonderful celebration of family, and we are so thrilled to see the enthusiasm surrounding foster care in Chihuahua. Take a look at a few pics of the event below!
