Casa Hogar Elim is a privately run orphanage in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico that currently houses and cares for over 100 children. Because the orphanage is privately run, the children of Casa Hogar Elim are not adoptable. Each child at the orphanage has his or her own story. Some were rescued from difficult circumstances. Some had their parents pass away. Others have parents who cannot care for them. Some kids spend their entire childhood at the orphanage while others stay for only a short time. As long as a child needs a home, Mama Lupita, the director of the orphanage, will not send them away.
The orphanage is not run by the government, so it relies solely on outside contributions. If you are interested in helping, please click the “Sponsor a Child” or “Get Involved” tab.
