La Tribu de Jesus Orphanage (Jesus Tribe) is located in La Gloria, east of Rosarito; 15 miles south of Otay Mesa Border. Approximately 75-80 children and young adults are currently being cared for there, ranging from 2 months - 20 years old. There are two homes on the property. The "White House" (main house) is where all girls and small children live, and the "Rancho House" is where the older boys reside. Jesus Tribe is run by Edith Palomino and a small staff of non-paid volunteers, who in return for their service, are also provided shelter for themselves and their own children. While Edith manages the entire orphan home, the teen boys' home is overseen by Benito, who serves as their live-in caretaker and cook.
Note: The conditions at this orphanage are very primitive with no heat, dirt grounds, intermittent running water, poor plumbing issues, lack of reliable transportation, low food supplies, etc. They are in a highly vulnerable situation, and receive no government help or aid, and little support from other U.S. churches or groups. Much of their support comes from the U40 Community, so our consistent giving and visits are necessary for the welfare of these children.
