  • Donations - what can you bring us?

    We are blessed by all your donations!

    Though your financial support is vital to meet our monthly expenses, we do have some current needs.

    We are in need of summer clothes and pajamas in sizes 12 month, 18 month, 24 month and 4t through 12 for our boys and sizes 4t through 14 for our girls! These can be new or lightly used

    We have created a wish list at amazon - showing our current needs - so please click below and take a look!






  • Hand Washing Station
  • Sports Court

Sonshine Hacienda 

A home for abandoned, orphaned,  neglected or abused children near
San Felipe, Baja California Norte, Mexico


Thank you to all who contributed to the sports court!

The goal was exceeded - and the court has been installed! 

As you may know, there was an unexpected expense that cost over $25,000.00 in US dollars - to install a sports court on the school property

Our thanks goes out to all of you who contributed - we have been blessed by the outporing of support.

We have complied with all that was required of us and are ready for our inspection!  Unfortunately, it was postponed by the Education Dept  - and they have not yet given us a new date for the inspection.  

We still need your prayers for this situation - If we do not receive the permit soon - we will not be able to open this August, and will have to wait until next year to open! 

This is God's ministry - He has blessed us through all of you - and He will prevail.



We have a special treat for you! please click on the blue link below to see the tour of our facility!

The term “orphanage” does not accurately reflect the true vision or purpose of Sonshine Hacienda. The Spanish word “alberque” (refuge) or  “to take in” –  is a more accurate picture of what we are – a safe house, as well as a more traditional home for orphans.

Some children are with us only a short time before being released to grandparents or other family members. Others have been with us for years.  They are all part of the Sonshine family - and are cared for by our wonderful "Mamas" God's love is reflected in both our staff and the precious children He has given us to care for.

If you are in San Felipe, we would welcome a visit!

Please make an appointment by calling or emailing:


Phone: Jack Weatherford (916) 223-5225

We also welcome short term mission trips! 

If you are interested, please email us to coordinate.

In order to limit the disruption in the children' schedules, we do ask that all trips be coordinated in advance.
