Casa Hogar Childrens Shelter

Puerto Vallarta • Riviera Nayarit 

Children’s Shelter Maximo Cornejo Quiroz was founded on February 1993 by Mr. & Mrs Cornejo.

At that time, Mr. & Mrs. Cornejo recognized that there was a desperate need for the underprivileged kids living in poverty or abandoned in the streets. They both had a dream to create a childrens home in a living environment with a family-like atmosphere, where the children would be given an opportunity to grow and become educated, to gain self-confidence and self-respect.

Inspiration for the name "Maximo Cornejo" was derived in the beloved memory of Mr. Maximo Cornejo, a successful hotel businessman who was the founder and President of the Association of Hotels and Motels in Vallarta. He founded the Tropicana Hotel in 1958 and expanded several properties in the famous Los Muertos Beach area of Puerto Vallarta.

Encouraged by his wife, Mr. Cornejo founded the Casa Hogar, even though he was ailing himself, and finally succumbed to his medical problems. His memory lives on in his generous gift in February of 1993. The commitment was then made to immediately start an orphanage and come to the rescue of these desperate children.

Casa Hogar has continued to grow and now houses 55 well-behaved, responsible, happy children.

We are a local, non-profit organization; a shelter dedicated to improving the lives of orphaned, abandoned, disadvantaged or vulnerable children.

Actually, the Casa Hogar supports 55 children of all ages (birth through life) operated under the patronage of donors, private sponsors and volunteers.

"Casa Hogar is not just a home. We prepare the children to be good human beings and set them up to integrate into society – with respect and self-esteem!" ...Rocìo Rodriguez.

The children of Casa Hogar come from diverse backgrounds such as abandonment, violence, abuse, family disintegration or extreme poverty. Some are children of indigent single mothers, others have been abandoned by their parents, and many have been abused. They all have one thing in common: a great need for love and the absence of a father or mother who makes them feel worthy of being loved.

Some of the children have come by way of local safety authorities. Others are channeled through the D.I.F social services arm of Government. Occasionally, they come from the parents themselves looking after the welfare of their children and requesting assistance of Casa Hogar until they can resolve the critical home situations that keep them from properly caring for their children.

The children live in our facility 7 days a week, 365 days a year. To carry out their studies, they attend various external schools, and are distributed accordingly with their age group.

We make an effort to cover expenses and demands associated such as uniforms, books and school supplies as well as tuitions. But the little ones (toddlers) spend their days at the orphanage, in an classroom program developed by Barbara Wilde, Nelly Barquet and a Canadian sponsor where a handful of volunteers work with teachers and wonderful people like Luz Aurora Arredondo, Rocio, and Casa Hogar founder, Sra. Elisa Cornejo, who do their best to make the orphanage feel like home.

Volunteering at Casa Hogar Childrens Shelter

There are many ways that individuals and groups can participate in orphanage activities.

For example:
• Fundraising activities organized by you, your family, friends, company, or church group.
• Keeping in touch with the children at the orphanage through pen pal writing, e-mail, and other regular contact.
• Building personal relationships with the children that help establish long-term fellowship bonds, giving the children a sense of family and belonging.
• Buying tickets to our Fundraising events.

• Reading stories to the children
• Yard work duties

• Creating a party or lunch for the kids

We have various activities every day. Please e-mail or call us to confirm your visit so we can assure a special attendance.
