We have two categories of financial needs to maintain and grow the services we provide the children of Casa Hogar La Familia: Monthly operational funds to pay the monthly expenses of the children’s home and capital funds to expand the capacity of the physical facilities to accommodate more children.
Monthly Operational Expenses
Our operating budget for 2016 is $4,000 per month. We rely upon several churches and several non-profit organizations to provide the lion’s share of these funds and supplement any shortfall from individual gifts.
Individual designated gifts are used to fund birthday parties for the children, quinceañera parties for girls when they turn 15 years of age, and to purchase extra beans, milk, meat, shoes, and school uniforms, and pay tuition and travel expenses for several of the children to attend technical school and college.
Another example occurred just recently when donations were used to replace all of the children’s mattresses.
Capital funds were used in 2013 and in 2014 to complete construction of the second floor, so in 2015 the location of the Sunday worship service has moved to the second floor and two new dormitories will be opened soon to accommodate all of the girls of La Familia. The boys will occupy the dormitories on the first floor.
