BORN IN COMPASSION
Many dedicated and hard-working people have kept Manuelito Navajo Children's Home going through the years.
However, friends, 2022 finds the Navajo children in trouble again! No amount of hard work and dedication can help the crumbling buildings. Those cottages, so lovingly built-in 1965/66, have crumbling foundations and can only be braced so many times until they are uninhabitable. The gym, food pantry/clothing building, shop, and school are all dated and need to be replaced. To add to the frustration, Jim Christian (Superintendent), turns away as many as 3 children a week because Manuelito can no longer house the added demand for the neglected, abused, and homeless Navajo children.
Our goal in the next 5 years is to replace the old and crumbling buildings, add more cottages to house more children, and build a proper school building to accommodate all of the children!! It is quite a challenge but we know with God’s direction, your prayers, and with your generosity, we can accomplish all 5 phases of Project: “NEW HOPE”

MEET THE HOUSE PARENTS
The primary work of the Manuelito Navajo Children’s Home is to provide a home for children, who for various reasons, cannot live with their parents. Our house parents are dedicated Christian couples who love children and have given themselves to guiding them toward responsible Christian adulthood.
