Orphans in Mexico
In Mexico, orphans have an uphill battle, needing guidance, love, and a saving faith in Jesus. Most orphans lose that war:
-70% enter into a life of crime
-40% are homeless; 15% commit suicide
-90% age-out at 18, totally unprepared
-only 6% start some college
Horizon Ranch launched to receive orphans at age 18 as they "age out" of the Mexican foster care systems. Selected youth receive a safe place to live and achieve their GED equivalent and university degree, costing about $150 dollars per month. After, the youth enter the workforce to be productive citizens, loving husbands, and dedicated fathers that honor God. Justin & Darren have literally built this ranch from the ground-up. Enfoque Ciudad not only pays for all educational and living expenses but provides mentoring, tutoring, and encouragement to make sure these youth are successful.
