Our Mission

Our mission is to be a safe and loving refuge for children in crisis and to accompany them on their journey to healing and wholeness, breaking the cycle of abuse and neglect one child at a time. We also want to teach them about Gods love for them and how through Him they can overcome.

Meet The Kids

We currently are helping 15 wonderful kids. They came to us from a variety of different circumstances and there are many more out there that need our help.

Won’t you take this time to learn a little more about them?

Welcome and Thank you for your interest in the New Dawning Children's Home.

Message from the Director


Hi! My name is Rev. Vernon G. Wood. In early 2006, I felt compelled to begin the process of reopening the Children’s Home.  As a result, I filed a Non-Profit Corporation under the name of “Misiones Latino Mexicanas de Mexico A.C.” and under that Corporation formed “New Dawning Children’s Home” (Casa Hogar Nuevo Amanecer).

We reopened our doors in January of 2014. Mrs. Wood longed to attend the dedication services, but she passed away suddenly in September of 2011 at the age of 78. Even though Dr. and Mrs. Wood are now both gone, their vision will continue to impact the homeless children of Mexico.  Because of their dedication, New Dawning Children’s Home’s reception area will display a plaque in their honor.

We are a faith-based organization that restores the broken lives of children in Mexico and shows them that all things are possible with God.

New Dawning Children’s Home has been and will continue to be the dawning of a new life for so many homeless and needy children.

Services We Provide For The Kids

Care for Today and Hope for Tomorrow.
New Dawning through Latin American Mission Ministries is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to being a voice for orphans. We exist to love and care for orphans and vulnerable children, by meeting their spiritual, physical, educational, emotional and social needs that they might overcome their life circumstances and break free from the cycle of generational poverty.


At New Dawning Children’s Home we are working hard to provide them with a home, food, clothing,  and educational opportunities.  But most important they will hear the gospel and learn about a God who loves and cares for them beyond measure.

But we cannot provide for these children by ourselves.  Your consistent prayers, encouragement and financial support can help us change the future of these children.  We invite you to make a difference today.  You have the opportunity to impact a child’s life and be its sole sponsor for just $100.00 dollars a month or help sponsor a child for any amount that you could give.  No amount is either too big or too small to make a difference in a child’s life and your gift is tax deductible.

Would you or your church be interested in a mission trip to Mexico?

Over the past several years, Mexico has seen such growth in the church.  There is a huge wave of God, the Holy Spirit, sweeping across the nation and the whole region.


Serve alongside us here at the orphanage and in our local churches. You or your team will give in practical ways through work projects and outreach, while also receiving from the local people as they extend hospitality and share their stories with you.
