In 1954, Father William B. Wasson of Phoenix, Arizona, founded the first Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH, Spanish for “Our Little Brothers and Sisters”) home in Mexico. His devotion to the care of orphans inspired an outpouring of financial support and volunteers for his humanitarian cause. Father Wasson’s family and friends in Arizona offered support by sending clothes, food and money. This led to NPH USA (then Friends of Our Little Brothers) being incorporated as one of the state’s first nonprofits in 1965.

 

After 50 years of succesful fundraising, a fire that started in the electrical wiring destroyed the office in Tempe on October 11, 2003. Thanks to the help of many individuals and organizations who donated funds, time and supplies, there was no interruption in the support provided to the homes. Now located in Scottsdale, the Southwest regional office encompasses the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah. Annual events include The Power of One Luncheons in the Spring and the Gala and Pequeño Tour featuring a dance and music troupe from one of the NPH homes in the Fall.

 

NPH raises the kids and we raise the funds, and we need your help! We welcome everyone who would like to get involved. Register online today to volunteer!
