Our Sponsor a Child ministry ensures that every child has access to the education needed to become a self sustaining individual and contributing member of their community.

El Ministerio de San Pablo (St. Paul’s Ministry) will facilitate the sponsorship of teenage youth by church groups, individuals, or families who want to make a positive difference in the lives of the children of La Gran Familia.

An anonymous donor will match your funds for the upcoming year. Therefore, any donation you give will be doubled!

  • Provide education for one teen including: tuition, books, supplies, uniforms, transportation, and tutoring.
  • Help foster communication between the teen and their sponsor
  • Empower the teen to reach his or her potential and to become a positive influence in their community.

Dulce Jasmin Orozco
11 years old

Favorite Activities: Play with the other girls, paint and color in books, and read books. She also likes to help cook!!

Dulce arrived at La Gran Familia on the 3rd of January 2015. She was 5 years old. Her father sought help from LGF because he was unable to care for her. Her grandmother/caretaker had recently passed away. She was alone for long periods of time while her father worked. This placed her in great danger. She started Pre-kindergarten in the LGF Day Care and gradually integrated with the other children. Dulce is now almost ready to graduate from elementary school and continue her education in Jr High. She is very happy to be at La Gran Familia!!



Leonel arrived at La Gran Familia on May 14, 2020. The police found him walking the streets of Cuauhtémoc during the night. He said that his mother had left him with an aunt. This aunt eventually took him downtown and abandoned him on the streets. The police took him back to the aunt’s house, but there was no one there. They had all left.
He was brought to La Gran Familia by DIF, the Mexican CPS. Leonel is now 12 years old and he is in the fourth grade. None of his family has been found at this time. Praise God, he is healthy and now safe.

Meet Angel! He came to La Gran Familia 5 years ago with his older brother, Cesar who is 14. Their mother and father were separated because of their dad’s alcoholism. Their mother found a job working in the Mennonite camps. She did not care for the boys at all.
They lived with their grandmother in a cardboard box. The grandmother was very poor and did not have enough money to feed 2 growing boys, so she brought them to La Gran Familia. Now Angel is 11 years old and in the 6th grade.
He will graduate from la primaria (elementary school) this year and go to la secundaria (junior high) next year! His favorite subject in school in science. He loves the experiments! He also loves to read and play futbol (soccer)! Now that he is living at LGF, he has the opportunity to go to “soccer school” two afternoons each week. Most importantly, at LGF he has a bed to sleep in, 3 meals each day, a place to take a shower, a place to study, and a safe place to play with brothers and sisters. Most of all, he has a loving, nurturing, Christian environment in which to call home! When he grows up he wants to become a policeman!!
