OUR STORY

OUR HEARTS

SLCH was started in 2004 by several individuals who had been reaching out to persons in needy situations in the area. SLCH is under the supervision and management of Osceola Christian Fellowship in Texas. Osceola Christian Fellowship has agreed to oversee the work and provide infrastructure for others to get involved and make a difference.

SLCH serves orphans and needy children by working closely with DIF, the Mexican government agency responsible for social services. The children at SLCH may be there for one month or many years, depending on the child’s family member’s willingness to be involved. It is our belief that God has placed children in families for a reason and that children belong to their families. We always cooperate with returning a child to their parent(s) or family members. This decision is made by the DIF.

OUR

MISSION

    • Care for the needy children in Mexico who don't have parents or were neglected by their parents. We will cooperate with the social service of Mexico known as DIF.

    • To raise the children to be godly men and women, to serve in their own country.

    • Recognizing the fact that God has chosen the family unit to care for the child, we will cooperate if DIF wishes to return the child to his parents.

    • We will not encourage out of the country adoptions, but be open to assisting adoptions within the country, and or arranging to place the children in small family settings.

    • Recognizing the fact that God has chosen the family unit to care for the child, we will cooperate if DIF wishes to return the child to his parents.

    • To provide an environment where the children thrive and learn the basic skills of life, and provide activities to that end.

    • To have a Christian Day School with Christian teachers, and make an effort to assist the child in receiving recognition from the government for the schooling, if needed in the future.
