We found many orphans and suffering children in need with little to no help available to them. A partnership was formed with a local church that was interested in coming alongside us to provide the much needed physical, emotional, educational and spiritual care to the children who are in the greatest need. In July of 2013 a US based 501c3 was created – Advocates of Love, Inc. In December 2013 a Dominican NGO was created, Fundacion Defensores De Amor, Inc. In 2014 AOL became licensed and accredited by CONANI, who is the children and families government authority. We seek to provide 24 hr. care for those children who meet the CONANI standards, and provide community-based care for those who meet the standards set forth by Advocates of Love. In addition to the care provided to the children and families in the Dominican Republic, Advocates of Love is committed to share the mission experience with communities and organizations in the United States.

In 2013 Advocates of Love began the first ministry and children’s home within the entire Province of Samana. To date we are the only children’s home and ministry to orphan and vulnerable children in the Province.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Show all” color=”danger” size=”lg” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-bars” add_icon=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fadvocatesoflove.org%2Fchildren%2F||”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row el_class=”content-third-section”][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner el_class=”pray-icon” width=”1/3″][icon_box icon=”” border=”0″ title=”PRAY” image=”3217″ class=”icon_wrapper”]We rely on prayer in everything that is being done.
