Marilyn and Les Widd founded Hearts of Baja Children’s Network in 2015.  It now helps to support nearly 6,000 children in 23 group homes, orphanages, and community centers in northern Baja California, Mexico.  In addition, Hearts of Baja serves two day care centers and more than 300 local families in need, with the goal of helping to keep families intact.

Hearts of Baja provides food, school supplies, backpacks, clothing, blankets, toys at Christmas, and materials for bilingual play and reading. The Maximize Girl Power Program offers the teen girls much needed feminine supplies, emotional support and self esteem building, so that they will be able to go to school every day of the month!

Hearts of Bajas believes they can help to change these children’s lives with love, education, nutrition and even bring back some fun into their lives!

Hearts of Baja welcomes working and retired professionals from all industries to lend your expertise. Please see our Projects page for a current list of projects needing volunteers. If you have an idea for a new pilot program, we would love to hear your idea! You can also follow them on Facebook.
