our history

In 1966, a young couple from Missouri made a trip to Mexico to assess how they could best work to meet needs and evangelize the people. They were met in Mexico City by veteran missionary Dean Cary. After much prayer they decided to begin a program that would later be called “Niños de Mexico”.  In January of 1967 they moved to Mexico to begin the work.


In 1978, an office was opened in Union, Missouri to provide communications with U.S. churches and to take care of the business end of the expanding ministry. 


Since then, many faithful house parents, staff, and volunteers have followed the Lord's calling to care for and share the love of Christ with over 470 kids. Today, there are nine homes in three Mexican states, 117 kids and 40 staff members living out James 1:27.
