Dorcas House

Dorcas House is foster home in Tijuana, Mexico for children whose parents are in prison.  St. Paul's Cathedral is a major underwriter and supporter of Dorcas House, providing operating funds, staff support, medical aid and much more.  It is the dream of the Friends of Dorcas House that the children of prisoners have a safe place to sleep, enough food to stave off hunger, and a nurturing environment where they can grow and learn. The hope is that each child may someday understand the love of Jesus Christ through the people who invest in their young lives.
