There are many ways to support the orphans and neglected children of Samaná – some people send money, sponsor a child, and/or ship supplies. Although these ways of helping children are worthwhile, it doesn’t end there.
Advocates of Love’s mission trips bring donors and the children of Samaná together for an unforgettable emotional experience.
Why Become a Mission Traveler
Mission travelers show the children of Samaná that they’re cared for and that they are important. The children have shown us how much they appreciate new faces by their hopeful smiles, welcoming natures, and other God-given virtues that shine through. Visitors to our Children’s Home enrich the lives of these kids and their own lives are changed, as well.

In 2021, we hosted these Mission Trips
In May 2021, donors visited the campus to see what amazing things had been created as a result of their gifts. They also got to meet the children and staff who call this place home.
In November 2021, we had multiple volunteer trips, including:
- Dominican Treehouse Tour: Dominican Treehouse brought a group of tourists to meet the children, play games and bond.
- ATV Adventure: A four-wheel club taught the children how to ride ATVs and brought them much-needed school supplies.
- Solano Mission Trip: “Chosen Hitters” brought a group of 17 made up of several families who brought their children on the mission field to participate and play baseball tournaments through our children’s home. Several of our children participated in the tournaments.
2022 Upcoming Mission Trips
As we step into 2022, don’t miss any upcoming mission trips. Our US team travels to the Dominican Republic several times a year, so you can take part in religious or non-religious mission trips. You can choose to join us on one of our trips or come on your own with your own group. We also have long-term internship opportunities available.
While you’re here, you will form relationships with the children through mentorship and activities such as games, arts and crafts, performances, and outings.
