Face of my Father

Rostro Del Padre AC

Face of My Father Children´s Home is a home for orphaned, abandoned, and abused children in San Marcos, Jalisco, Mexico, offering children a new beginning and a safe, loving environment where they can grow and thrive .  The home received it´s first child in May of 2009.  It has room for up to 10 children at a time, girls and boys, and as of 2014 has cared for 17 different children.  It is a Mexican Civil Association and is sustained purely by donations and child sponsors.

New Doors!

In November we were finally able to replace the front doors of the Home.  The former doors were made of wood and the termites had eaten away at them, leaving little holes all over, and for some reason the wood that had been used would expand and contract with hot and cold temperatures, making the doors stick closed at times and not stay closed at others.  This, of course, was a safety hazard, so we designated funds from a donor in Alaska to have new aluminum doors made.  These doors come with a push-bar emergency exit door on the two main exits, conforming with the new safety laws for Children´s Homes.
