"El Faro Orphanage"
The Corazon De Vida Foundation provides Shelter, Food, Clothing, Education, Healthcare and Love to over 50 orphanages in Mexico. El Faro is one of the orphanages they support. Here is just one story of a miracle two people accomplished by trusting their hearts in the name of charity and love for children.
"1999 Mama Carmen and Papa Jorge Gonzales opened the doors of their home in Tijuana to a few abandoned children living on the streets. Word spread and in a very short amount of time children were being dropped off in the middle of the night by relatives who could not care for them, or were frightened because of a history of abuse.
Mama Carmen and Papa Jorge used their retirement funds to purchase a small piece of property six years ago in Tijuana and built Casa Hogar Sion, formally El Faro 2, orphanage. Within a few months of their brave beginning, Jorge and Carmen were "parents" to more than 60 children. Food was often scarce in the early days at El Faro 2. The lights were frequently turned off as the home struggled to make ends meet.
Taking care of 100 hundred children is not without its struggles, but with the love and devotion and strength of Mama Carmen and Papa Jorge and the staff, the orphanage has flourished. Through the efforts of affiliated churches and independent groups, private and corporate donors, there are now 7 buildings, all the children are going to school, some of the older children are in private school and trade tech."

Ride on has grown to become one of the largest therapeutic riding centers in the country with two ranches. Through Therapeutic Horsemanship Ride On increases strength, balance and self esteem to children and adults with physical and mental disabilities.
