Hogar de Cristo is not an isolated institution in the struggle for a just and humane society. There are hundreds of smaller and larger institutions that day by day paddle towards this goal.
Moreover we have the conviction that we are not experts and pioneers in everything we do and we need a collaborative and synergistic effort to achieve a greater impact.
Therefore we have always sought partnerships with other institutions to join forces and expand the network of opportunities for our members.
Some of the partnerships we currently maintain according to our different areas of work are:
