Casa de los Angeles is a community of caring people who gather to nurture children, serving the needs of the less fortunate, treating each person with dignity and respect as they work to make a better life for themselves.
Casa de los Angeles began as a free daycare center in the heart of San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato on September 18, 2000. It is a safe haven for the children of single mothers who come from the outskirts of town to work or to sell their wares at the local mercado. Often these children were being left home alone before this center was established.
Casa de los Angeles has grown to be a community center in which mothers find the support they need to make a better life for their families. Besides help with their children, these families receive medical care, clothing distribution, scholarship opportunities, transitional housing, after school care, food bank . . . all done in a relationship of mutuality that respects the dignity of each individual.
Casa de los Angeles now serves over 100 children from 85 families. In addition to daycare, the center provides a place for mothers to find the support and the help they need to make a good life for themselves and their children. Each family served is required to participate in the life of the daycare center by giving one hour of service for each day their child is present.
