Talita Cumi is a faith-based children’s home that relies on the donations of people like you to support us in providing for these children. The rising costs of food and clothing, as well as the need to pay our staff, is our constant source of concern and prayer. If you’d like to be an answer to our prayers, please consider becoming a regular donor through our sponsorship program or giving to our general funds.

To develop a relationship with one of our children, and stand in the gap as a prayer partner and sponsor, you can find more information here on the Sponsorship Program.

General funds at Talita Cumi are used to purchase food and clothing, cover transportation costs, pay staff salaries, meet medical needs, and provide each child with a good education. When you donate to Talita Cumi, you help us meet the basic needs of each child so that he or she can have an opportunity to flourish in life.

The honest truth is that financial donations from people like you who believe in the vision of Talita Cumi are what allow us to keep food on the table each day. For this reason, we will not hesitate to ask our Christian brothers and sisters around the world if they would help us provide for the children at the home, nor will we ever stop giving thanks for the way that our donors have blessed our children!

Give us this day our daily bread

Our sponsors are people like you who have made the decision to stand with Talita Cumi by personally investing in the needs of a child here at the home. Sponsors’ monthly donations help us provide food, clothing, shelter, emotional care through therapy sessions, schooling, and relationships with staff who genuinely love and care about them. We ask sponsors to commit to donating $50 a month, though if a sponsor is willing, more than that is greatly appreciated.

We believe in a holistic method of care, and therefore it is our belief that a balanced life includes physical, spiritual, and emotional health. We have divided these further into five categories: spiritual growth, life skills, education, physical well-being, and healthy relationships.

We at the Home are able to be active and present in all five areas, but we know that God has called you to other areas of the world. It is with this in mind that we suggest that you can still be a part of our community, even from a distance. We ask that you might pray for us, remembering those children and staff who are here day in and day out.

However, if simply being a prayer warrior for us is not enough for you, or if you feel a special calling or connection to our children, we ask that you might consider becoming a sponsor. Being a Talita Cumi sponsor gives you the opportunity to minister to our children on all five levels, even from afar. Your financial support gives us the means to care for their physical well-being, education and life skills; your prayer support enables you to serve as a spiritual advocate, and your letters and photos (and visits!) provide on the relational level.

On the Family page, we have a photo of our children. Take a look through them and if you feel a connection to a specific child, please contact us. (Please note that we also assign sponsorships based on need).

We encourage you to pray about becoming a sponsor to one of our children. It takes a family to raise a child. We ask that you consider becoming a part of our «family.» Dios le bendiga (God bless you).
