Spring often symbolizes a season of new beginnings - much like our Construction program! Corazón homes are successfully being constructed, creating a fresh start for many of our communities’ families. Our house build sponsors are returning and have open spaces for their house build projects.
We encourage you to join us this build season by volunteering or sponsoring your own home build.
For questions on how to volunteer or sponsor a home this year, please contact [email protected].

We hosted our very first pageant for Corazón! Six representatives from each Corazón community participated in Miss Primavera to encourage their community members to be active in Corazón programs and to fundraise for their centers.
The girls had so much fun participating in their pageant and everyone went home with their own Corazón crown!
2022 Miss Primavera
A special thanks to Lucy, Ana, and Lupita for organizing this special event and to our Corazón crown sponsor.

Spring Equinox in Teotihuacán

From approximately March 20 - 21st, thousands visit Teotihuacán, Mexico to stand at the top of the Pyramid of the Sun. Visitors stand at the top of the pyramid, wearing white and red clothes, and face the eastern horizon to welcome the first sunrise of the new season. Standing at the top of the Pyramid of the Sun is said to bring new energy to those who visit. (Al Rojo Vivo, 2018).
