Casa Alianza Mexico
Fundación Casa Alianza México I.A.P. (CAM) was established in Mexico City in 1988. We work with street children and adolescents aged between 12 and 18 including young mothers and their babies. Many of these have been victims of human trafficking, sexual abuse or have had addiction problems. Many are HIV postive.
Casa Alianza Mexico has a well developed multi-disciplinary team. We offer children the opportunity to escape from the streets to a place of safety where they will be respected and where we don't make judgements.
As with other Casa programmes, we offer a staged transition programme that begins on the street. We then offer children the opportunity to escape from their bleak existence into one of our residential programmes and via education and training ultimately offer them an opportunity to lead independent and self sufficient lives.
