How do you get the children?
We receive abused, abandoned or neglected children through the government. They rescue the children and send them here.
When did you start?
Can you adopt children from the Shelter?
No. To adopt a child in Mexico you need to go through 'Consejo Estatal de la Familia' who has the authority to place the children in adoption.
How many children do you have?
The number of children in at the ranch any given time can change at any time. We may receive children and others may move back with relatives.
What is the range of ages of children that you have?
This too can change as children are received and other may leave. Presently (March 2014) the age range is 2-19.
What age children do you allow to come to the shelter?
The children can come from new born to age 8. They can stay until they are 18.
What is the age of the youngest child you have received?
6 weeks old
How many people can come in team?
We can accommodate up to 15 people at a time.
Do I need to pay to intern with your ministry?
We do not want someone to not be able to come because of money but if you can raise funds to cover your own costs (plane tickets, personal items, eating out) any extra will be received as an offering to help the ministry.
Is there a place for medical help while at Ranchito con Esperanza?
Yes. There is a clinic in town and a hospital 20 minutes away.
