Casa Hogar Elim began in 1986 when a woman named Guadalupe Carmona (affectionately known as Mama Lupita) opened her home to four children who had been abandoned by their alcoholic father after the death of their mother. Despite the demands of caring for her own husband and four children, Mama Lupita deeply felt the call of God to help those in need.
Those original four children are now adults whose lives bear the fruit of Mama Lupita’s humble obedience. Several have careers and/or are raising their own families. Of course, in the years since Mama Lupita took in those original four children, Casa Hogar has become home to many more children in need.
At the present time Casa Hogar houses over 100 children ranging in age from infant to 24 years old. Through Mama Lupita’s loving example, the children are taught to love the Lord and depend on Him to supply their needs.
As a privately run orphanage, Casa Hogar Elim receives no funding from the government. It is funded solely through private donations. If you are interested in supporting Mama Lupita in the work of Casa Hogar, we ask that you allow God to speak to your heart concerning how you can give. Above all, we ask you to keep us in your prayers. We are assured that God will supply all our needs according to his riches in glory.
