The Hogar de las Estrellas has been providing exceptional care for children with physical and developmental disabilities and those suffering from abuse, neglect and abandonment for over 11 years. While they’re worked hard to implement programs that would enable them to be more self-sustaining, they still rely in large part on the donations of individuals and those donations have dropped off sharply in the past year. While they have worked hard to continue to provide the best care for the children there, many workers have gone without pay, some for months, and many have now had to leave the hogar and find other work to support their families. The staff at hogar de las Estrellas is now down to 10 caregivers for about 40 children….this is a 24/7 operation, so I can only imagine the exhaustion they must be experiencing right now. My goal is to raise $1500.00. This will assist in meeting the immediate need of paying the salary for two additional caregivers for one month, or one additional caregiver for two months. I plan to travel to the home in April to re-assess the needs and conditions there as a pre-cursor to launching my own non-profit social enterprise that will hopefully begin to alleviate some of these needs for them, but this will take time and their need is immediate. Without the Hogar de las Estrellas, many of these children would be left on the streets to fend for themselves. As my friends, you’ve seen my photos and heard my stories about these kids and the special place they hold in my heart. I hope I can count on some of you to pitch in and give them and this wonderful home a fighting chance to survive.
