Casa Hogar Elim is a privately run orphanage in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. This children’s home began in 1986, when “Mama Lupita” opened her home to four abandoned children. She quickly expanded her reach and grew to housing many more, currently housing approximately 65 children with ages ranging from toddlers to 25 years old. These children are not available for adoption, as many of the children have a living parent or relative who simply cannot care for them. Mama Lupita has turned Casa Hogar into a ministry, teaching the children about the love of the Lord and helping them grow in a relationship with him.Casa Hogar Elim is solely funded through private donations, including a financial and relational partnership with Preston Trail for over ten years. Thank you for committing to pray for this ministry, and may the Lord hear and answer our collective prayers.If you feel inclined to help support Casa Hogar Elim financially or have questions about this ministry, please email us.
