We are excited to announce that we are working to establish a new girls home near our Casa de Niños boys home in Puebla.
Since the merger with Casa de Niños in 2015 we have seen the need for a girls home in the same city as the boys home. The majority of children we receive come as a part of a sibling group – from 2 – 7 kids. All of our homes are separated by gender, and lacking a home for girls, the sisters end up living in different cities. This distance is an obstacle to keeping a close family bond.
Because of the distance that Casa is from the majority of our homes, it offers safety to boys who could be in danger by being in close proximity to the people that have hurt them. By placing these children in a home several hours away, they have the freedom to begin to heal, without the worry of being found.
The Board of Directors has agreed to move forward in the coming months to establish a girls home – Casa de Niñas/New Beginnings – near the Casa de Niños home in Puebla. Besides allowing these brothers and sisters the opportunity to spend more time together, this new home will allow us to welcome in children from other cities where there are children in great need.
Please keep these plans in your prayers. Lift up the boys and girls as they will soon strengthen their relationships again. Pray for God to lead us to the boys and girls that we need to welcome into the Niños de Mexico family in the coming months and years in Puebla.
