Casa Hogar is a nonprofit Christian based ministry in Oaxaca, Mexico. Over 100 children are being cared for by Carol and Francisco Marin. Many of the children are severely disabled. Casa Hogar was founded in 1974 by Albert Lynn Baker, a quadriplegic from Texas that saw the need to help the neediest children in the extreme poverty of Oaxaca. The children are educated in three classrooms that were built on the on the property in 2009 due to overcrowding in the community schools. Despite many challenges, the Marin’s have created a loving environment for these children that would have certainly faced an uncertain future had they not been included in the Casa Hogar family.
Meeting Carol Marin two years ago has been a life changing event. She and her husband have been running the orphanage for over 20 years, despite great personal sacrifice. They have devoted themselves to caring for generations of children- always with great spirituality and love. My images have successfully been used for fundraising campaigns as well as collected for the personal use of the children in the future. Casa Hogar is wonderful and I have always enjoyed my time with the children. I hope to continue my association with them for many years.
