Welcome to Nana's House

We have an epidemic here in Mexico of children that live in the street. Our goal is to get children off the street and into school. We are a home to many wounded children. These children are being raised by people who love and respect them. Many lives have been transformed since we started out in 2008.. We are seeing children who would have been stuck in abuse and poverty now study in the University. They will become Doctors, Dentists, Chefs and it’s so exciting to be a part of Nana’s House. This our heart and this is our passion, to be a voice to those who have been silenced.

Mary Jo Hansen; Founder Nana's House

"I raise up my voice – not so that I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard. One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world."
