We have partnered with several organizations (Dreams for Change, YWCA, San Diego Dream Center) to provide help within the growing homeless community in downtown San Diego. Love Thy Neighbor hosts at least 8 homeless outreaches throughout the year. For 3 years we have curated the annual art shows for the National City Chamber of Commerce.
Since our inception we have been dedicated to serving kids and families to the south. We have recently adopted an orphanage named "Sonrisa De Angeles" located in Maclovio Rojas. We will be supporting this orphanage year round with essentials, school, supplies, educational workshops and construction on the building.
LOVE THY NEIGHBOR also works towards supporting the growing Haitian refugee community in Tijuana. We continually gather donations for New Jerusalem, a small church turned into a shelter housing from 70-125 refugees at a time. Feel free to also contact them direct to get involved in helping the Haitian community in Tijuana
