Over 80% Funded - Thank you!

More than a ride, it’s been a voyage of sorts into new territory. I applaud the fantastic efforts of our team of Caregivers during this very different season of an extended school-from-home curriculum.

Our Caregivers play a critical role in the operation of the home providing around the clock supervision, guidance and support. With limited opportunities to interact with people outside of Casa Hogar our residents have developed deeper bonds with our staff members. The sweetness of this season continues and we are very grateful for the positive social atmosphere onsite.

This year we redeployed some staff members to further support academic requirements during the morning shift. The afternoon shift, starting at 2 pm, is more recreational but some small-group tutoring sessions are now in place to help our residents improve in fundamental areas of math, reading and writing.

Thank you for your continued support for the duration of our campaign. Please help us to reach our fundraising goal by contributing to the remaining balance and sharing with your social circle. Thank you.

Final Push to 100% Funding

Thanks to your generosity, we are so very close to complete funding of this heart-warming project.  

There are two main components to our project:

a) Trades Training for youth

b) Funding for our Casa Hogar Social Worker

Trades Training at Casa Hogar continues to be a very edifying activity for the participants.  After finishing our Bicycle Repair workshop, we started an Automotive Mechanics course.  

Training themes have included changing a flat tire, oil & filter changes and preventative/programmed maintenance.  We’ve even had some driving lessons!

These training workshops provide the youth of Casa Hogar practical life skills, exposure to basic maintenance concepts and an opportunity to identify if the trade is of interest to them on a professional level.

Our residents are particularly interested in remuneration benefits.  They often inquire if particular trades are well-paying professions.  The simple answer we are providing is "If you have quality service you will receive quality payment.".

Our Social Worker continues to play an instrumental role in facilitating family-visits onsite and in-home.  Currently two of our teen residents (brothers) are spending the full month of February with their Aunt.  A family re-integration appears to be in the near future.  

Also last month, 15-year-old teen, Zoren, who had spent 6-years in our care was reintegrated with his mother.  Truly nothing short of a miracle.  Mother and son are doing very well.  Finding and keeping in contact with family members is incredibly important.  We have been fortunate to witness incredible transformations in the lives of family members allowing for reintegration.  

We are definitely on the right path. Thank you for your continued contributions into the valuable lives of the children and teens of Casa Hogar de Cabo San Lucas.

Approaching 75% of Our Goal!

We've had a great year at Casa Hogar.  School from home has been surprisingly successful.  The harmony and comradery on property is at an all-time high and continues to improve each month.  Much has to do with the dedication and love of our fantastic Caregivers.  They are the unsung heroes of Casa Hogar.  

With 6 weeks remaining in the calendar year, we've achieved an incredible 75% of our fundraising goal.  Thank you for your contributions. 

Please spread the word!  

Giving Tuesday is December 1st and many projects will benefit from matching and rewards from GlobalGiving.  

With your assistance I believe we can fund the remaining $1,928 USD by year's end and surpass our project goal of $7,000 USD.  

I've shared some photos of activities with our residents. They are amazing kids. Investing into children and teens is a beautiful privilege.

Thank you for caring!
