Rancho Los Amigos
Rancho Los Amigos a ministry of YWAM, which will tug at your heart strings like no other. In 1983, when we were asked to take over its operation, Rancho Los Amigos was a children’s home situated on 12 dusty acres that provided a haven to abandoned, neglected, and abused children from various parts of Mexico.
Today Rancho Los Amigos still sits on those 12 acres and in the original adobe structure, but incredible changes have taken place.
RLA provides love, protection, a clean home, good meals, and an education to an average of 35 children primarily from the Juárez, Mexico area. RLA brings hope to children who find themselves growing up in very difficult situations. We seek to “Reach, Raise, and Restore” these needy and hurting children. The following goals for each child are the centerpiece of Rancho Los Amigos:
- A safe, loving environment
- Nutritious meals
- Hope and opportunity
- Physical, spiritual, and emotional healing
- A well-rounded, bilingual, character-based academic education
- A strong moral foundation based on Biblical principles
- A sense of responsibility to give back
RLA believes that giving each child an opportunity to grow in a positive environment alters the future of a child. Goals of the home are met through the help and service of our full-time volunteer missionary staff, and the generous support of donors and patrons to the ministry.
A solid education is central of the home’s endeavor to change the future for these children. Every school-aged child at the home has the opportunity to attend a school where they receive a good education with a strong, bilingual academic program.
Come see how you can help in transforming lives as we disciple Mexico one child at a time! For more information on how you can make a difference, please visit the Get Involved page under Rancho Los Amigos.
