Steps of Hope Outreach has CLOSED

Dear Steps of Hope Outreach Donors,

Thank you for your compassion and generosity in supporting Steps of Hope Outreach and the children of Nepal, Haiti, and Mexico that we have served since 2003. During our time in operation, you have donated over 1/2 million dollars to help needy children in the orphanages we served.

Unfortunately, due to increasingly complicated regulations from the State of California and the loss of our volunteer treasurer, we have ceased operations and will no longer be able to process donations. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. You will still receive your end-of-year receipt for any donations already processed.

 For future donations, please feel free to contact the organizations directly:

Mercy Children Ministry, Pokhara, Nepal
Director: Sher Lama

Himalaya Grace Home, Kavre, Nepal
Director: Lila Bahadur Tamang

Espwa Village, Les Cayes, Haiti
Director: Frank Irr

Estado 29 Orphanage
, Ensenada, Mexico
IMPORTANT NOTICE: As of November 2020, Desarrollo Integral de la Familia (DIF), the Mexican equivalent of Child Protective Services in the United States, has "suspended activities" at Estado 29 Orphanage due to non-compliance with DIF requirements. DIF also states that there were anonymous complaints that Estado 29 was "not guaranteeing the physical and emotional integrity of the children." Steps of Hope Outreach ceased operation over a year before the major leadership change at Estado 29, and we unfortunately have no verifiable details as to what occurred.

 Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or require any additional information.
