We have partnered with Pastor Adolfo and the Esperanza Templo Cristiano, to work with street kids who live in the highly vulnerable “cardboard” neighborhoods of Torreon, Mexico. These children desperately need a safe place of refuge in addition to physical, emotional and spiritual support to help them stay in school and out of the gangs.
This work allows us to change the trajectory of a child’s life by providing for their physical needs (with the Saturday morning breakfast program) as well as their emotional and spiritual needs (by building relationships with them and showing them that a better life apart from gang involvement, is within their reach).
Above are photos taken during the construction phase of the building, as they prepared for opening.
Our weekly breakfast program continues to flourish!
Fun group activities, education support, food security and a place for worship and fellowship help bring families and the commmunity together.
Exactly as it sounds, houses and buildings in these communities are pieced together with scrap wood, tarps and lots of cardboard.
The wonderful Pastor Adolfo!

60 children from the breakfast ministry attend a party held at a private school.
The field is painted, the goals are up and the lights are on! Kids have already started practicing after school and we've even had a few parents join the fun. We are so thankful to have a beautiful new field where kids can come to learn and families can come to bond.
The field is almost leveled and the bathroom and kitchen buildings are being refurbished for future concessions.
