Rooted in Family Togetherness, Nazareth Orphanage strives to help children reunite with their families when possible.
Outreach for Nazareth Orphanage (OFNO) is a nonprofit organization that works to support the fundraising and volunteer efforts that benefit Nazareth Orphanage, which provides a safe home environment for at-risk young boys in Tecate, Mexico. For the past 50 years, the orphanage has helped young boys and OFNO volunteers have improved the orphanage facilities; and now with the aid of donors and the expansion of its campus facilities, Nazareth Orphanage can also help young girls.
Meet Sister Enedina Mejia Ferreira, Director of Nazareth Orphanage, and longtime advocate for young boys and girls.

Phase I: Breaking Ground
With your help, more orphans—young boys and girls—can benefit from the loving care of Nazareth Orphanage, and more families can be strengthened through our mission of Family Togetherness. To welcome young girls, we need to build facilities to house the incoming orphans. We need your help to make this happen.
Compassion in Motion
Four Saturdays during the school year, OFNO volunteers travel to Nazareth Orphanage in Tecate, Mexico to participate in a day of volunteering alongside the children and Sisters. The daylong trips begin early morning and volunteers return to San Diego that same day. Volunteers help with maintenance projects such as gardening or painting the facilities. Help us make a difference!
