Open Arms Childcare Ministries is a non-profit charity that provides no-cost childcare to needy families and provides assistance to families who are in desperate need of childcare services. They currently have two campuses. Their first campus opened 11 years ago and is located in La Mision, Baja California, Mexico and their second campus opened on 2016 and is located in Camalu, Baja Cailfornia, Mexico. Open Arms will soon break ground on their third campus in Los Pinos! Star Kids Company plans to donate a portion of profits from April through June sales back to Open Arms to help with this exciting new endeavor.
Mexico is a third world country with no real form of childcare. Because of the drastic decline of the peso, many families are no longer able to survive on the father’s salary alone. This is forcing mothers into the workforce at a fast pace, and their children in turn become victims.
Open Arms keeps families together by providing them with a safe refuge during the day. It is their goal is to keep children out of orphanages and off the streets, and bring them into the loving arms of Jesus Christ. The care and assistance they provide for these families extends beyond basic well-being and encompasses all facets of a productive lifestyle, which includes but is not limited to academic, religious, and life education.
Open Arms strives to keep families together and to prevent child abandonment. They want to emulate Jesus Christ, who opens His arms to all the children of the world. They too will open their arms to Christ’s children and provide no-cost childcare and early education for needy families. They provide a refuge for children during the day to help keep families together. Our prayer is that this will decrease the rate of parents dropping their children off at orphanages simply because they have no one to care for them during the workday. It is their desire that, through Bible classes, these children will become lights among the darkness within their families and community. Their hope is that these children will lead their families into the loving arms of Christ as they learn about God’s love at the daycare. Not only does Open Arms want to help these children, they also want their families to see the love of God.
