Hogar de Niñas María Madre de Dios (HNMMD)

The Hogar de Niñas María Madre de Dios is a non profit institution dedicated to rescuing and providing a home for helpless, mistreated or orphaned girls who need someone to love, take care of and protect them.

We have addressed a large need that exists in the community. Many of the homes are not stable and lack responsible parents to provide their children the love and protection that they need.

The Hogar is supported by the Hermanas de Amistad Misioneras en Cristo Obrero (AMICO).

Primary Programs and Projects

The Hogar de Niñas María Madre de Dios offers the girls everything that they need to live and that nobody else is giving them: food, clothing, housing, education, physical and mental health. Everything that they need to grow, develop and integrate themselves into society. The Hogar began on January 21, 1988, with six girls in the sacristy of the neighborhood chapel. Today we have three houses in which the girls live. We have a tutoring pavilion, computer lab, among others.
