Project 90% Funded; Producing Great Results

Thanks to your generosity, our project goal is closely in sight.  There are two main components to the project:

a) Trades Training for youth

b) Funding for a Casa Hogar Social Worker

Trades Training at Casa Hogar has been very edifying for the participants and Casa Hogar.  Training themes have included electrical circuits, soldering, plumbing, garden irrigation systems, videography and air conditioning.  This past Saturday we started a new course, bicycle repair, which attracted the attention of many more residents including younger students.  

These training courses 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.  

In particular, our teens were attracted to the business opportunity of air conditioning service and repair, due to the high reward to investment ratio, to-home service and relative low time investment.  

In fact, one of our teens is already assisting our air conditioning service contractor.  

Our Social Worker has played an instrumental role in facilitating family-visits onsite and in-home.  Since June we have had 11 children re-integrated with their family members (for the most part, grandparents, aunts and uncles).  

With school classes being taking from home, we have additional time available on weekdays to invest in formative sessions discussing values, health and emotional well-being.  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.

Caregivers More Valuable Than Ever

I would like to take a moment to applaud your kind contributions to this very special project.  We are half-way to our goal of funding the annual salary of one of our fantastic Caregivers.  

Currently with 38 full-time residents, the work of our Caregivers is more valuable than ever.  Our residents have now been out of a traditional school routine for five months.  

Our Caregivers have risen to the challenge of keeping our residents happy, busy and learning!  

We've had a lot of fun this summer with weekly field trips to quiet, remote locations including a waterfall, ranch, beaches and swimming pools.  

Please help Casa Hogar continue its valuable investment into the lives of girls, boys and teens during this challenging season.  

Thank you.

Project Adjustments, But Still On The Right Path

Greetings!  

In mid-March, in light of concerns of COVID-19, we had to make significant changes to our visitor’s policy cancelling all non-essential visits. This included external Instructors putting our trades training workshop on a temporary hold.  

But the teens were productive throughout the spring lending a hand with cleaning, sorting and organizing. They were of tremendous help pruning trees and gardening. They also learned some home skills with baking and cooking classes.

We’ll get back to formal trades training classes on July 4th. Right in time for summer, the theme will be air condition maintenance.

Meanwhile our Social Worker, Claudia has had a busy season coordinating internal workshops on life values, children’s rights and sexuality. We’ve really covered a lot of ground in these areas this year.

Thank you for making this possible through your valuable contributions.
