Our values

Whatwe do

Mercy and justice with love for all children, adolescents, and families.

Not a single boy or girl should live on the street, suffer, be violent, be hungry or cold.

In all our programs are present:


We want to be a channel for all people to approach God, and to know that they were made in the image and likeness of Him.


We deliver food in all our activities and support families with food for their regular meals.


Validate the family in its right dimension, seeking healthy relationships, providing tools and empowering them to be happy.


We pretend that each person can receive healing as well as freedom, from every sequel, harmful effect and pain of their life history and to return to the purpose of God.


Safety and protection for all our children and adolescents are essential, providing them with shelter from outside dangers and a safe indoor environment.

Prudence is a wise friend, so we invite you to take the appropriate precautions.

A respectful and sincere approach helps a lot. Do not make offers that you will not comply, or that may get confused.

Being a good Samaritan is possible, without assuming undue paternalistic roles or believing that we can solve the life of others.   A good Samaritan is a person with mercy who offers to be a channel to help and manage help for another person.

There are some homeless kids who do not express the desire to leave the streets.   It's required to work longer with them in the induction process.    Remember to inform the child's location to those who work with this population.   Also contributing to what is needed to provide such help, can be a determining factor for expanding the statistics of children rescued.
