None of the children here are orphans and most are here with siblings. For all of them, their parents (or single parent) are unable to raise them due to financial need. Many end up at the Home due to governmental referrals from San Pedro Sula although some parents or other relatives hear about the Home and ask to bring their children (or grandchildren) here.
