Hogar Infantil La Gloria is a fantastic organization. As a person who visits regularly I am always impressed with the care that is provided and how happy the kids are. While some of the children have rough backgrounds you would never know it. The directors and staff have created a very safe and family like environment that any child can flourish in. I would recommend visiting and volunteering at this site to see first hand at what great work they do.

Hogar Infantil la Gloria is a place filled with love for children, many of whom have never experienced love before. Every time I visit over the past twenty years I see kids realizing their worth growth as humans. Volunteers come on weekends and inter-semester breaks to be with the kids and help with maintenance and improvement projects at the orphanage. Alumni return to visit, help, and be examples to the residents. It's love and community being experienced and given.

Look for ways to keep help passing the love and community these kids experience and pass on to each other and eventually to the rest of world.

Hogar Infantil La Gloria is an amazing organization. I have volunteered at Hogar Infantil for the past year. Every child at Hogar is treated like a member of the large family and is given the utmost respect and love each child deserves, as well as countless opportunities for growth. The staff are compassionate about their work and make sure each child is recognized for their unique gifts. The most powerful representation of the changes which happen to these children is evident in the children's love they show to one another, stating often, "We are all a family." This is such a wonderful thing to hear since many have experienced overwhelming anguish, heartbreak, and abuse within their own biological families. Whenever I leave Hogar I am filled with a renewed sense of hope for humanity and amazed at the transformative power of love seen in the lives of these children.

Hogar Infantil La Gloria provides such amazing opportunities for the children in its care. Not only do the staff and volunteers ensure that every child's physical, emotional, and educational needs are taken care of, but they also provide a safe and loving family for these kids who wouldn't have one otherwise. What strikes me the most about the kids here are that they're so happy, healthy, well-adjusted, and vibrant. Hogar Infantil is such an inspiring place to be, and it's a wonderful thing that the kids here are given a chance at a normal life.

I had the opportunity to volunteer weekly at Hogar Infantil La Gloria and it was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in my life. The children at Hogar Infantil La Gloria are filled with so much life and passion. Having the opportunity to play games, tutor them in English at times as well as them tutor me in Spanish, and share life experiences was simply awesome.
The leadership and staff at Hogar Infantil La Gloria is second to none. The lifestyle and atmosphere that has been created has made this more than just an organization, but a family. Each child is able to call Hogar Infantil La Gloria their home, and it is a place where they know people care about them.
It is an exciting time as well for Hogar Infantil La Gloria. It seems there is a growth in fundraising and different projects each time I visit. I look forward to seeing how the orphanage continues to impact the lives of the children for years to come.

I've worked as a volunteer at Hogar Infantil for about two months now, and I'm absolutely inspired by the work done here. Hogar successfully creates a loving and supportive environment for its children, an environment in which I've witnessed the children thrive and grow. The children here are provided with so many incredible academic, extracurricular and social opportunities that enable them to rebuild from the hardships they've endured. Hogar Infantil truly lives up to its name, cultivating a real home and family for these children.

The work of the two young men who run this amazing children's home continues to impress me. The kids are well cared for and loved, but just don't have a nuclear family like you or me. Their family consists of one another and those who volunteer. They truly appreciate all the support of any volunteer who comes because you are family.

They're constantly making improvements to the program. A few years ago, they put in rooms for the teenagers to have privacy. Now they're moving to build homes for the kids.

Hogar Infantil is a truly remarkable place for vulnerable children. When I visited as a volunteer, the children were engaged and obviously taken very good care of. Their clothes were clean, they were fed nutritious food, and they had a caring environment in which to spend critical years in their development. I would whole-heartedly recommend the organization to potential volunteers and donors.

I have been down to Hogar Infantil a few times now and I am impressed with it every time. The children there are always happy and having fun. Hogar is such a great place for them to be and the staff really cares about them. Hogar provides a safe environment for these children to learn and grow, and I am always happy to see that school work is emphasized and there are always oppotunities for learning there. At the same time, there are always special events going on that make the children feel special. Overall, Hogar is a wonderful place for these children to be!
