Who we are?

2,627 lives over 25 years.

Domestic violence sends hundreds of girls and teens into the street, placing them in a situation of vulnerability that makes it hard for them to study or even develop a healthy personality. Casa de las Mercedes Foundation I. A. P. provides a place where hundreds of girls have found a safe place to grow up and go back to school, where we face difficulties with a brave face, knowing that we’re stronger together.

Household Maintenance

Fresh paint for the dorms? The power went out! Need to disinfect the entire premises? Time for the once-a-year spray for pests and rodents? Need new fire extinguishers? We love this home, we want it to be a place of harmony with a respectable appearance so that our girls who have been socially rejected and in situations of poverty regain a sense of a clean, orderly home.

Sponsor a child

Your donation will be used specifically for girls who have made progress in a performance area: school, sports, or a trade. Your donation will go towards the purchase of their supplies. We encourage you to invest in a little girl. Being a guardian angel has big rewards.

Little Angels Guardian

Our babies can sleep and rest each evening. We've reserved pediatric, medicine, diapers, and special foods for them thanks to the support of our Little Angel Guardians—people like you whose heart moves them to provide for the care of a baby.
