Rooted in Family Togetherness, Nazareth Orphanage strives to help children reunite with their siblings 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.

“The king will answer them: ‘I assure you, as often as you did it for one of my least brothers, you did it for me.”
Matt. 25:40

Girls everywhere matter.

Our capital campaign will fund the orphanage expansion initiative that includes providing a safe space for young orphaned girls to call home, and with human trafficking hitting an all-time high-we want to protect as many children as we can.

Please help us give these sweet little girls the love they deserve and the education they need to imagine a future filled with hope.

Let’s keep them safe.

Phase I: Breaking Ground

$549,936 of $750,000 raised

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!
