Hope for Honduran Children Foundation

News from Honduras (February 2020)

Donor generosity has enormous and significant impact. A heartfelt thank you again to all our donors for making 2019 an extraordinary year for so many children! There is no child or teen in our programs who isn’t profoundly grateful to their sponsors. In addition, we are again grateful to:

San Juan de Rancho Michelle Burgess and Dress A Girl Ohio for creating over 500 beautiful sundresses for every young girl in our five villages.

Judy Pramik and her team for making countless dresses and shorts for young boys!

Ellen Mattingly for donating over 150 tubes of much needed toothpaste!

Cleveland State University Students for their generous donation of toothpaste, vitamins and backpacks


To the many girls who made the very cute dolls that found many loving homes

Special thanks again and ten thousand times again to all our donors for making another extraordinary year possible for so many children. There is no child or teen in our programs who isn’t profoundly grateful to their sponsors.




Fifteen years ago we built a home for girls in Nuevo Paraiso and now in January we opened our newest program – Casa Sagrado Corazon, named in honor of our treasured Abuela, Dorothee Riederer, who studied and taught at Sagrado Corazon in Washington, D.C. Located in Santa Lucia, Reina Valle of our sewing center is the “house mother”. Each girl spends at least two hours each day at the sewing center. We are thrilled to introduce:



Ammi - is from a village close to Naguara and is in her final year of high school.






Marbely – is in junior high and is the sister of Yelson Plata.







Maria de los Angeles – is in her sophomore year of high school and her brother, Henry is the new Casa Noble resident.

Casa Noble Update

Ahenrys we say so often… A child of H4HC means No gangs, No drugs, and No illegal entry to the US… but rather college graduates with good jobs. Every year life seems to get better and better for the Casa Noble family! We are thrilled to welcome sixteen year old Henry to our Casa Noble family.






Darwin Rios

Christina Corbitt and Darwin celebrated their marriage (August 2) at the Temple in Salt Lake City with a lovely wedding reception following.
