Where We Serve

New Hope Children’s Shelter was a vacant McAllen nursing home and assisted living facility when Upbring took it over and transformed the buildings and campus to help unaccompanied minors in Fall 2014. Children ages 6-17 receive lifesaving support at New Hope, including food, clothing, medical care, case management, education and psychological and spiritual care.

Children at New Hope are surrounded by professional staff 24/7, which encourages their personal and academic development and empowers them with skills and resources to take the next steps toward productive lives once their legal cases are resolved.

New Hope offers bilingual educational opportunities, computer instruction, outdoor recreation, arts and crafts, music, life skills, and group activities by volunteers, as well as spiritual care.
