Safe Homes for Children is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that works to support Casa de Sion, which carries out charitable programs in Guatemala. Started by the Dalia family in 2003, in order to help improve the lives of children in greatest need of assistance and support in Guatemala. We run an orphanage in Los Robles, Guatemala which is being expanded to eventually hold up to 50 children. Most are abandoned or neglected children who have been sent to us by the courts or the hospital system. In addition to the orphanage we provide several outreach programs near beautiful Lake Atitlan in the Guatemalan highlands. We focus on feeding programs, educational scholarships and medical and dental aid, as well as helping with emergency needs of villages hit by natural disasters. We are unique in that we work with virtually no overhead and no US employees take a salary from the non-profit, so that the majority of the money donated goes directly to the Guatemalan children and their families that we serve.
