Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH)
"In 1954, a boy was arrested for stealing from the poor box of a small church in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico. The young priest in charge, Father William Wasson of the United States, was unwilling to press charges against this "thief." Instead, he asked for custody of the boy. One week later, the judge sent him eight more homeless boys. By year's end, 32 boys were in residence and Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH), Spanish for "Our Little Brothers and Sisters," was born.
Over 15,000 children have grown up in the NPH family, which now operates homes in eight additional countries: Honduras, Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador,
the Dominican Republic, Bolivia, and Peru. Today, over 2,800 children are being cared for in a loving, secure environment.'1 Father Frank's Kids supports the orphanages of NPH.

St. Isidore's Catholic Church
Father Frank's Kids was founded at St. Isidore's Parish when Father Frank was taking residence there. It has become one of the many faith-based ministries of the church. St. Isidore's provides facilities for all of Father Frank's Kids board meetings, as well as a facility to collect, store and distribute goods for the organization. The church, school, and community at St. Isidore's Parish provide tremendous support to Father Frank's Kids - and is our home.
