About Us

Who We Are
sponsor-perlaOrfanato Niños de Cristo is an orphanage located in the Dominican Republic that was founded in 1993. It houses more than 135 children who have been abandoned and/or victims of abuse, both from the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Orfanato Niños de Cristo is dedicated to improving the lives of the children, focusing on education, health and housing, as most of the children spend their entire childhood and young life in the orphanage. The orphanage has two housing facilities, a privately-run school and recreational areas.

Orfanato Niños de Cristo is incorporated both in the Dominican Republic and the United States. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in the United States with tax deductible donations.

Who We Help
Orfanato Niños de Cristo welcomes Dominican and Haitian children who have been abandoned and physically and/or verbally abused. These children used to live in dangerous and unsanitary conditions, oftentimes having to beg on the streets to survive, suffering from malnutrition and lack of access to education.

In the Dominican Republic, orphanages are almost non-existent and government funds are extremely limited, making our orphanage one of the few ways through which these children have a chance for a better life.

Our Mission
To provide orphaned children with a home, health and education through college to help them become independent and productive members of their communities.
