Proceeds from this event will support Casa Hogar La Gloria, a home for at-risk and vulnerable children in Tijuana, six miles south of the border. We provide food, shelter, medical care, education, social development and Catholic religious formation in a safe, secure and loving environment. Today, Casa Hogar is home to 27 children ages infant to 15 years, most of whom are placed into care for reasons of abuse, neglect or abandonment.
Every year, the children of Casa Hogar celebrate the feast day of La Virgen de Guadalupe by throwing a big fiesta filled with laughing, singing and community. While the pandemic has dramatically changed how we will celebrate this year, we can’t ignore the needs of these children. Wherever the holiday season finds you, please enjoy their beautiful voices singing “La Guadalupana."
The children of Casa Hogar La Gloria need your help!
