Casa de los Ángeles was founded in 2000 as a free daycare center located in the heart of San Miguel. It is a safe haven for the children of mothers who come from the outskirts of town to work or to sell their wares at the local mercado. Often these children were being left home alone before this center was established.
Casa de los Ángeles has grown to be a community center in which mothers find the support they need to make a better life for their families. Besides help with their children, these families receive medical care, scholarship opportunities, transitional housing, food bank… all done in a relationship of mutuality that respects the dignity of each individual.
