Just as Paul tells us in Romans 12:3-8, we are all part of one body. Some of us are called to preach, some of us are called to evangelize, some of us are called to foreign missions, and some of us are called to support those in ministry. We would love to have you become involved with us in our mission to change the world for Christ. There are several ways that you can become involved right now in the USA. Please take a moment to see how YOU can become a part of the ministry of Niños de México.
Living Link Fund
Our American staff members ministering in Mexico are asked to raise their first years support in advance of going to the field. We encourage them to continue working to fund their support in order to continue ministering in Mexico.
Current American staff serving in Mexico are:
Julie Copp – Joined staff in July 2016 to work in the area of spiritual growth among our young ladies.
Support that the individual raises is sent to Niños de Mexico for their Living Link fund. This support helps offset their expenses generated by salary, health insurance, housing, travel, etc.
Tax deductible contributions should be written to: Niños de Mexico (Do not write the individual’s name on the check). You may include a note in the envelope with their name listed. Please send the donation to:
C/O Niños de Mexico
PO Box 309
Union, MO 63084
You can also contribute to Niños online.
The “I-Help Club” is made up of dedicated people who commit to send at least $10, up to four times a year, when there is a special need. Knowing there are people who are ready to help if a need arises is a blessing beyond measure to the ministry of Niños de México. Contact the office by calling (636) 583-2000 or by email for information about joining the I-Help Club!
Each year, friends of Niños de Mexico raise much-needed support through FUN fundraising events like golf tournaments, 5K run/walks and trivia nights. A fun time of fellowship also introduces family, friends, and coworkers to the work of Niños.
Opportunities are available and needed for personal and corporate sponsors to publicize their name, and support Niños de Mexico at the same time!

Over the last several years, these events have helped to fund projects such as the construction of Casa Esperanza, the education program, the medical clinic activities and outreach, as well as the purchase of newer vehicles. Mick O’Hanahan, Development Director for Niños, directs and assists in the promotion of these events. If you are interested in participating in a current event or hosting another in your area, contact Mick by email or call him at (417) 499-3983.
The education fund was designed to offset the current cost of educating the children. There is a major cost involved in providing the children with their own school that is able to meet their needs. Many of the children have special learning needs that cannot be addressed in the public school program. Niños de México also provides support for our older children that desire to further their education by attending the Universities or vocational schools.
The Medical fund was designed to offset the cost of much-needed medical care for our children, staff, and the mobile medical clinic in Chilapa. Many churches and individuals, especially doctors, have chosen to support Niños de México specifically in the area of medicine. By sending money for the medical fund, it “frees” up general fund monies to be used elsewhere.
Church Planting Fund
Niños de México has implemented a church planting ministry. The planting ministry fund is designed to offset the cost of supporting the ministers from general funds. The purpose of Niños is to evangelize Mexico. The method is in training and equipping abandoned, abused, or orphaned children to evangelize their culture. Many of Niños’ children have wanted to be preachers and teachers or to plant churches where there are none. Sometimes the churches do not pay enough to support a minister and his family. Many of the preachers in Mexico must have another job or means of support. So, Niños has decided to help our alumni or others get started in a preaching ministry or to plant churches in areas where there are no Christian churches. Currently, Niños supports Jorge Martínez as the minister of the Christian church in Chilapa, Puebla, Mexico.
The vehicle fund was designed to be used to purchase new or newer vehicles, specifically vans, for the ministry of Niños de México. Currently, Niños has six children’s homes with each having between 12 and 16 children. Many churches and individuals have donated to the vehicle fund over the years and we were recently able to purchase newer vans for each of our children’s homes.
