Hope House 

General Operation Donations

Launched in 2008 by Shepherd’s Heart founders Rodney and Kina Dutro, Hope House is an all boy's home located in Ixtlahuacan de los Membrillos, Jalisco, Mexico (near Guadalajara). It is dedicated to sharing the hope of Jesus to boys who have suffered neglect, abandonment and abuse.

Since opening its doors in 2008, Hope House has helped several hundred young men. This outreach to the community has enriched not only the lives of these young men but the lives of the staff that work there and their families. This comes as no surprise, but it takes financial contributions to keep this vital ministry operating. 


Please consider partnering with us to provide the highest level of care for all the boys who call Hope House home. We need your help to keep food in the pantry and the lights on.


Hope House is determined to break the cycle of abuse and neglect the boys living there have found themselves in and, as a result, raise a generation of productive, successful young men whose hope is founded in Jesus Christ. The mission of Hope House is guided by this verse in Luke 2:52, ”And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.” Following this example, everything at Hope House is driven by their desire to cultivate these four areas in the lives of the children under their care.
