Emmanuel children’s home In 1990, a group of people interested on helping homeless children on Tijuana, led by Eduardo Mendez and his wife Ana Maria Diaz de Leon, began to support these children by giving them attention and providing food, from this in 1995 a civil organization was formally created which was called Orfanatorio Emmanuel A.C., this children’s home offers shelter to homeless children or children in risk situations that are taken by the local authorities and have no space to keep them.
With the pass of time, Orfanatorio Emmanuel A.C., was tasked with opening new spaces to take care of more children, due to this, in 1998 the organization opens the Casa de la Gloria which takes care of boys between 5 and 11 years of age. In 2006 the girl’s house was opened with the main characteristic of attending girls who were victims of sexual abuse and exploitation.
