Welcome to the Hogares Rafaela Ybarra

For more than 65 years we have provided home, care, and protection to girls and young women between the ages of 5 and 18, who for various circumstances lack one. We provide them with the right opportunities to ensure healthy development and growth at all levels.

About us

Hogares Rafaela Ybarra is a non-profit corporation founded and directed by the Religious of the Guardian Angels.Based on a preventive approach, we seek to reduce school dropouts and eliminate inappropriate behaviors.


Our mission is to provide a home, care and protection to girls and young women who, due to various circumstances in their socio-family environment, lack a home and adequate opportunities that guarantee healthy development and growth at all levels: physical, moral, spiritual, emotional and educational.


The main goal of our service program is to offer you the opportunity to develop your potential to the fullest, so that you can live a righteous and successful life. We want to help develop independent women who are of benefit to their families and society, working with them successfully to develop the tools necessary to overcome the challenges they face.
