In January 2020, Isagenix awarded a one year grant to Un Futuro Mejor. Un Futuro Mejor provides support to Refugio Mazatlan and Mi Futuro which are homes for disadvantaged children. Refugio Mazatlan caters to boys in middle and high school. Mi Futuro is for boys and girls from existing homes who want to learn a skill after high school such as a university degree or a trade.
The grant will go towards the cost of achieving the following objectives at each of the homes:
Teaching the boys and their families, and the staff to live more healthily through eating and exercise.
Providing healthy meals and snacks to the children as well as the staff when they are at the homes.
Ensuring that the boys participate in healthy extra curricula activities and trips that include exercising and healthy food when possible.
Refugio Mazatlán is located in Mazatlán Sinaloa, México. It is a free home for boys who are homeless, orphaned, neglected, abused, or who live in poverty. Refugio Mazatlán focuses on adolescents of middle school and high school age. The goal is to provide support for boys who might not otherwise be able to attend school. Refugio Mazatlan is staffed by professionals, with teachers to assist with homework, and psychologists to offer therapy as needed. Refugio provides a safe, nurturing environment for the boys to live in, as well as all the tools that are required for them to prosper and eventually become independent adults.

MI FUTURO en mis manos
Mi Futuro is a home in Mazatlán that targets boys and girls who typically come from families who cannot afford to support them. The adolescents have completed high school and are “graduates” from other existing children’s homes. They wish to further their personal growth and education. The intention is that they will learn a skill such as a university degree or trade. The goal is to provide the adolescents with an opportunity to become self-sustaining and succesful members of society. In this way Mi Futuro plays a small part in breaking the cycle that perpetuates poverty.
