About Us

Baja Love Outreach is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our passion is for supporting and enabling orphanages through filling their unmet needs and building lasting relationships.  We focus on providing supplementary aid to five existing orphanges in Baja California, Mexico between Tijuana and Maneadero.

Baja Love is funded through generous donations and a variety of fundraising efforts.

We have a number of standing programs that include two annual visits to provide aid.

Our Christmas in July program is a "serve-cation" opportunity for volunteers.  We deliver each school-aged child their school uniforms, new shoes, backpacks and necessary school supplies so that they can excel scholastically. 

In December, we return for our Christmas program where we deliver essentials and gifts of each child's choosing.

Additionally, we provide ad-hoc support based on the specific needs of the orphanages. For example, we are replacing kitchen appliances at 3 orphanages so that they are able to provide healthy meals to their children.

We have been meeting the needs of orphans in Baja for over 25 years together. It has always been a dream of ours to expand this aid to include several orphanages. Through work, prayer and tremendous support, these dreams have become a reality through Baja Love Outreach. We are beyond excited to be a part of helping to enrich the lives and provide opportunities for the orphans at these orphanages and to help them achieve their potential in the world.

All of my experiences professionally and personally have prepared me for the adventure of Baja Love Outreach. I look forward to using the knowledge that I have gained in Occupational Therapy to equip the lives of both children and staff in the orphanages that Baja Love Outreach serves.
