Changing the course of history…
                        …one child at a time

Fundación Corazón de Niña  — Heart of the Child — is a registered not-for-profit organization (Mexico) that provides a nurturing family environment for at-risk girls and boys of all ages.  We typically have thirty-eight to forty-four children and youth aged four months to twenty-three years. About two-thirds of the children are girls. We have two homes in Puerto Vallarta — one for the girls and one next door for the boys.

 We survive  on faith, our wits and the support of many beloved individuals, businesses and service organizations…





We survive on faith, our wits and the support of many beloved individuals, businesses, institutions, community groups and service organizations who volunteer their talents, labor, financial and material resources to make  Fundación Corazón de Niña the wonderful place it is.

Fundación Corazón de Niña is entirely dependent on its loyal supporters for funding. We receive no stipends from local and state governments, themselves desperately short of funds.

Fundación Corazón de Niña is the only residential resource for girls over the age of twelve in Puerto Vallarta.

Please. Come in. Explore our website. Get to know us. We welcome you, perhaps as a volunteer lending your talents and experience,  perhaps as a financial supporter who wants to make a difference in the lives of children, or perhaps simply as a friend offering us good wishes. We welcome you all.

Our door is always open. If you would like to visit please email or call me.  I’d love to meet you. If you are interested in lending a hand at Fundación Corazón de Niña,  please go to How to Help, and thank you.

Co-Founder and President
