SAN FELIPE - Casa de Fe Raffle!


By Lisa Maine
Casa de Fe Orphanage in San Felipe is preparing to open within the next few weeks! After a long and arduous journey to complete the primary steps to open an orphanage in Baja, children should be occupying the first of three homes on the property located in the Ejido north of San Felipe by the time school starts.
The facility’s homes will house 12 girls in each home. Bill and Carol found a couple to live and work in the first house and raise these children to be educated, responsible adults. Complete screening was done by the Mexican government to ensure the couple is suitable for the project. In addition, the Spradlins have spoken with the Municipal and State officials and have received a lot of help and encouragement and promises of ways to help the girls to go on to higher education if that is what they choose to do.

The AsociaciĆ³n Civil (Mexican nonprofit corporation) for Casa de Fe was established in October 2006. The orphanage volunteers as well as the Spradlins are continually working to secure funding for the monthly costs necessary to run the orphanage. The estimated monthly budget for the first house is only $3000USD/month. To raise these funds, the orphanage is running a raffle for a 7-9 Day Mexican Riviera cruise!
Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased by visiting Bill and Carol at the San Felipe Homebuilder Office at Plaza Paraiso, Km 178.5 Carret. 5 Mexicali-San Felipe or by email info@vipearthevents.com or
