The Salvation Army came to Acapulco and built a Children's Home in 1952. They were the first Children's Home here in Acapulco.
The current Salvation Army Children's Home in Acapulco, Mexico opened, at this location, in 1963 and currently serves children from ages 3-18. The home provides love, secure housing, food, clothing, and medical care for the kids.
Here at the Salvation Army Acapulco Children's Home we try to enrich the lives of Acapulco's needy and disadvantaged children. We strive to better their opportunities and chances for success in life. All donations made to the Acapulco Angels through this website benefit the children .
Funded entirely by donations of cash and in-kind services from local and international donors, the "Alfred & Ray Lawrence" Salvation Army Children's Home has expanded our outreach to allow you, our donors, to see what is going on here at the home and also to include more opportunities for you to get involved and help the children.
Our donors include people who have visited Acapulco or live here part or full time and wanted to get involved and help the children at the home. Local companies and citizens also donate time, money and items needed by the home.
In 2015 we created A Salvation Army Facebook Page and Twitter account and developed this website. In 2019 we were joined in our mission by Acapulco Angels, A US 501(c)3 Nonprofit and also a Mexican Associacion Civil. We created an Acapulco Angels Facebook Page, Twitter and Website. These help better deliver our message and allow us to share with you the activities at the home.
All donations to Salvation Army Acapulco are Tax Deductible in the USA and a receipt will be issued for Mexico or International Donors. (Please see your tax advisor for your specific tax situation)
Please share this site with your friends so that they can see the great work we are doing and perhaps get involved too!
Thanks to the kindness of donors like you, Friends Of Acapulco, Inc. and "Alfred & Ray Lawrence" and Family for helping out through the years.
Please join us in helping Acapulco's children.
