About

CASA HOGAR “ESPERANZA PARA LOS NIÑOS”, IAP

Background
Esperanza para Los Niños (Kids’ Hope Children’s Home) was incorporated on February 27th, 1991, arising from the vision of a group concerned with the difficult living situation of a number of families, and challenges from factors such as unemployment or drug use. The Children’s Home was created to provide support for these parents, or family members, and later reunite families wherever possible. Currently, Esperanza para los Niños is home to 23 children who have been channeled through various institutions, including the local DIF (Office on Integral Family Development).
Location 
The Esperanza para los Niños Casa Hogar is located 24 km out of Puerto Peñasco, at KM 24 Carretera Peñasco-Sonoyta, Colonia Ejido Lopez Aceves, Puerto Peñasco, Sonora 83550.
