The Refugio Infantil Santa Esperanza, A.C. (R.I.S.E.), is a non-profit shelter for infants and children under the age of 14 who have been turned over to R.I.S.E. by DIF (Desarrollo Integral de la Familia), a Mexican government organization that is the legal representative for minors under the age of 14. DIF’S main objective is to reintegrate these children with their families, but this rarely possible. R.I.S.E. gives these children a safe and loving place to live because they have no other choice in their lives.
R.I.S.E. welcomes each child but receives no money from DIF or the Catholic Church so they depend on private donations and fundraisers in order to assure that the children continue to enjoy a pleasant and loving home.
This year we are targeting Best Education to give the kids a chance at quality education programs from the best resources available.
Our annual "Celebracion Para Los Ninos" is the biggest and by far the best charity event of the season.
