  • Donations - what to donate

    We are blessed by all your donations!

    It is a challenge to recieve donations at the moment, due to the current situation.

    Some things on our list are limited at the local stores.  If you are at Calimax or Bodega - please think of us and pick up some diapers or cereal (or anything on our list) just to help out during the crisis! 

    Our list of items that are currently needed at Sonshine Hacienda has been updated - so please click below and take a look.

 Welcome to

Sonshine Hacienda 

A home for abandoned, orphaned,
neglected or abused children near
San Felipe, Baja California Norte, Mexico


The term “orphanage” does not accurately reflect the true vision or purpose of Sonshine Hacienda. The Spanish word “alberque” (refuge) or  “to take in” –  is a more accurate picture of what we are – a safe house, as well as a more traditional home for orphans.

Some children are with us only a short time before being released to grandparents or other family members. Others have been with us for years.  They are all part of the Sonshine family - and are cared for by our wonderful "Mamas" God's love is reflected in both our staff and the precious children He has given us to care for.

If you are in San Felipe, we would welcome a visit!

Please make an appointment by calling or emailing:


Phone: Jack Weatherford (916) 223-5225


We also welcome short term mission trips! 

If you are interested, please email us to coordinate.

In order to limit the disruption in the children' schedules, we do ask that all trips be coordinated in advance.
