Phase 1 -- Campaign Goal $1,000,000
In very real terms, Ciudad de Ángeles is a young organization. When completed, our campus will serve the needs of 80-110 children and young adults.
The Lord has blessed us and we are now ready to receive additional children on our campus. We have room for 4 children now and are working with family services in Mexico (DIF) to make that a reality as soon as possible. We also plan to bring in an additional 8 children by the end of the year. But, in order to continue moving forward, we need your help with our immediate needs.
New Transition House
Through our Transition Program, we help our transition students obtain further education, develop career and independent living skills, and emerge as productive Christians who have the necessary tools to support themselves and provide for a family.
But, our children are reaching age 18 at a rate that has outpaced the capacity of our existing Transition House. We need immediate help to continue providing housing for our transition students and to assist our children as they grow physically, spiritually, socially and emotionally.
Child Development Center
Our Child Development Center, which is currently under construction, will provide a permanent place for counseling and therapy, so we can better tend to the mental and emotional health of our children and prepare them for adult life. There will also be an on-campus medical exam/treatment room, which we plan to use for direct care of our children, and as an outreach to the local community through open clinics and medical missions.
By having these facilities on campus, we can eliminate travel, wait time, and expense of going to medical providers’ offices. Your donations will allow us to finish this project without costly delays.
Healthcare and Education
Early this year, we were successful in obtaining a full time therapist to assist Marce in her communication development and she has shown great progress in these few short months. We have also had a number of children who have required surgery, made trips to the emergency room, or traveled off the island for treatment. These events have a significant impact on our Healthcare Fund, which covers "major medical" needs.
Another goal of our Strategic Plan is to provide better educational opportunities, which will equip our children to become the next generation of Christian adults who are responsible citizens in the local community. We are on track to absorb the expense of private schools into our regular operating budget, but it will likely be another year before that is fully accomplished.
Your help will ensure that we have adequate resources in our Healthcare and Education Funds.
In addition to these areas, this campaign will also allow us to construct a Maintenance Shop and install necessary infrastructure (electric, water, and sewer lines, sidewalks, etc.).
We need your help now to take the next step. Please join Ciudad de Ángeles in our service to these beautiful children and the cause of Christ!
