Manos de Amor does not receive any type of government funding – the home is completely dependent on the generous donations of its many friends and sponsors.  From tourists who visit once, to volunteers, companies and churches who lend support on an ongoing basis we are grateful for every gift we receive.  Here are some ways you can help:

Baking Supplies Needed


It’s Fundraising season – in the month of February we host 2 events which raise almost all the funds we will need to support our home for the year.  It’s kind of a big deal and we need your help!  When you’re packing your suitcase, please consider bringing some type of item – a piece of art, some jewellry, a special gift from your hometown – to be included in our Silent Auction.  This is a major source of revenue and we need lots of donations to make it successful!
