How It Works

 

Sponsorship is one of the most powerful ways you can help a girl break free from the oppression of abject poverty and abuse. Your sponsorship helps to ensure we have the essential resources needed to provide a safe, secure, loving home for each and every girl entrusted to the care of Our Little Roses. When you become a sponsor we combine your investment with those of other sponsors and donors in order to provide the best care possible for each girl.

Sponsorship at Our Little Roses is very unique! Sponsors are the life-line for our girls – truly their extended family. As a sponsor, you become part of a girl’s life. We encourage you to write letters and visit the home if you can. For 30 years sponsors have visited and attended pivotal events such as graduations. Just this summer two sponsors were with Francis as she received her Master’s Degree in School Psychology. Sponsors have escorted their sponsored girl down the aisle at her wedding and now serve as godparents to her children.

Once you become a sponsor, we will provide you with a password for the Sponsors Page so that you can stay informed on the daily life of your sponsored girl. You will also be able to follow her “sisters”. We invite you to subscribe to our online newsletter the Rose Garden and visit our Facebook and Instagram pages for on-going news.

FAQ’s

  • Will I sponsor a specific girl?

    Yes. You have the opportunity to choose and sponsor a specific girl.  Our Sponsorship Manager can provide you with information on our girls and help with your decision. We encourage our sponsors (but you are not committed)  to build a friendship with the sponsored girl and to communicate with her. Experience has shown that the friendships developed between sponsor and girl are life changing for both.

  • How much is sponsorship?

    Sponsorship starts at $60 a month – just $2 dollars a day. If you can sponsor for $60 or more, or take on an Educational sponsorship at $70 per month, or sponsor multiple girls, you can help us achieve even more. We have many sponsors who have sponsored for 10, 20, even 30 years.

  • How will my sponsorship donation be used?

    We strive to create lasting change for your sponsored girl by providing a safe, loving home.  We have a capacity for 70 girls but the average occupancy is 65. These girls, while from many different parts of the country, become a true family.  When you become a sponsor we combine your investment with those of other sponsors and donors in order to provide the best care possible for each girl.

  • Why should I sponsor with Our Little Roses?

    We have been empowering girls through love and education since 1988 – making this our 30th year!  Our Little Roses is considered the top home for girls in Honduras and we have amazing stories of success.  Our girls come from overwhelming situations of abject poverty, abuse, abandonment and oppression. They are infants, toddlers, young girls and teenagers who have been left alone to fend for themselves.  You can be a part of the solution for these amazing girls.

  • Are my contributions tax deductible?

    Yes. Our Little Roses Foreign Mission Society, Inc., is a nonprofit, tax-exempt charitable organization, under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (EIN 54-1663713). Donations are deductible as allowed by law. Please contact your tax advisor with any questions.

  • How long will my sponsorship last?

    Sponsorship is a voluntary, ongoing contribution. You decide how long you are able to help. We have sponsors who have supported our work for many, many years.  Many of these have witnessed their sponsored girl begin kindergarten and ultimately graduate from high school becoming strong, successful, independent members of society. Often they choose to sponsor another girl once their sponsored girl has moved out to live independently..  We also have families who are 2nd and 3rd generations of being sponsors!

  • Can I give a gift sponsorship?

    Yes. You are able to share the gift of sponsorship. You will be able to enter the gift recipient’s information on the enrollment form. Your gift recipient will receive a card and welcome package introducing them to Our Little Roses extended family sponsorship program.

  • What if I am not ready to commit to an ongoing sponsorship?

    While sponsorships are the core of our ministry, we have many donors who prefer to support on a one-time basis.  Our ministry has many needs and every donation helps us to provide the best care and education for our girls. We welcome and are grateful for the blessings that every gift brings.

  • Who can I contact if I have any questions?

    You may email our Sponsorship Manager, Gail Haldeman or call us at 305-603-9758. As a sponsor, you can also manage your account through our website.

SPONSOR A GIRL

Your support and sponsorship gives these girls hope and it helps us make this life-changing work a reality. These girls are not only vulnerable to the immediate danger threatened by Honduras’ abject poverty but they are increasingly a target for human traffickers. Your generous sponsorship combined with other donations allows us to provide a safe, loving home, nutritious food and clean water, health and medical care and a childhood that every girl deserves.

TESTIMONIALS

Read what other sponsors have to say about their experiences with Our Little Roses:

Healing power of Zumba!

Over eight years ago I was blessed to be introduced to the opportunity to support Our Little Roses through Carol Garrison. I went the first year and offered Zumba to the girls. We all had so much fun together dancing to Latin music!

Until we meet again

After living in San Pedro Sula for 2 years, it was hard to believe that this was my last night in Honduras. I had heard of the ministry through one of the ladies from my church that had been to Our Little Roses and had been going there to volunteer for some time. When the girls found out I was leaving they asked me to please come out to see them…

Building Relationships

Ways to Build Your Relationship with Your Sponsored Girl

  • Send notes or cards to your sponsored child at any time (Letters will be translated).
  • Send Christmas and birthday cards and gifts to your sponsored child.
  • Join a mission team or check available dates for individual or family visits to Our Little Roses.
  • Contribute toward the educational needs of your child. This includes school tuition and fees, uniforms, books, school supplies, tutoring and special activity fees as needed.

Please ask how you can help support your child’s education.

  • The general Education Sponsorship for our girls is $840 per year, which is due Dec. 1st.
  • The Education Scholarships for girls attending Holy Family Bilingual School are $2,500 annually.

You can send packages or boxes for the ministry or girls directly to our Miami office. Please see the Fine Print Section below for important information on sending gifts.

Please send to:

Our Little Roses Foreign Mission Society, Inc.
P.O. Box 530947
Miami Shores, FL 33153-0947

Or, if a street address is required, ship to:
Our Little Roses Foreign Mission Society, Inc.
Santa Cruz-Resurrection Episcopal Church
11173 Griffing Blvd.
Biscayne Park, FL 33161

Allow plenty of time for your gifts to arrive at the Miami office and then be packed for transport to Honduras with the next available courier. Sending the gift a couple months before the event is best practice.

Call the office at any time, we love to talk with our sponsors 305-603-9758.

To ensure a secure and timely delivery of your cards and gifts:
Place your gifts in clear zip-lock bags and write your girl’s name on the outside of each bag. This makes it easy to distribute the gifts to girls. Keep packages lightweight as items are hand-carried by a courier traveling to San Pedro Sula. Prepare TWO copies listing the contents of each box/package and include your name, address, email and phone number on the list.
Place one copy of the list of contents inside the box/package. Place a second copy of the contents list in a separate envelope with a $10 check per box made payable to OLRFMS and mail to the OLRFMS office in Miami. PLEASE DO NOT fill the box with plastic bags, styrofoam peanuts, newspaper, etc. as these create environmentally unfriendly disposal problems in Honduras. PLEASE DO NOT wrap gifts in boxes or send gifts in themed bags with tissue and bows. This becomes an unnecessary and environmentally unfriendly waste product in Honduras.
