Social Support

Welcome to the Necahual Foundation website!

We are a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to supporting the needs of children.

We keep our operating costs as low as possible so that every penny can go to things like these swimsuits you see to the left that are worn to the pool by children from the shelter.

Thank you for helping us on our mission!

Thank you to our 2021 Sponsors!
