Our Little Roses Foreign Mission Society Moves to Miami


Dear Friends,


We want you to be the first to know that Our Little Roses Foreign Mission Society, the U.S.-based 501(c)(3) whose mission is to increase support and awareness for Our Little Roses Ministries in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, has moved to Miami.


Here's our new address and contact information:


  Our Little Roses Foreign Mission Society Inc.
  525 NE 15th St., Suite 100
  Miami, FL  33132-1411
  Ph:  305.401.0378
  Fx:  305.375.8054


Let me also introduce myself. In November, following Beverley Allison's unexpected passing, Bishop Leo Frade, chairman, and the board of directors of OLRFMS asked me to serve as Acting Executive Director of OLRFMS to ensure that the important work of securing support for Our Little Roses Ministries in Honduras continued.


Our efforts these last several months have focused on relocating the office to Miami with the planned sale of the property on which the offices were located. We ask your patience and understanding as we move through this transition. Please feel free to call or email us if you have any questions.


At the same time, we also say goodbye and thank-you to Betty Lou Roberts and Joanne Matthews, who worked closely with Beverley and served OLRFMS for 13 and 19 years, respectively. Both have done a tremendous job over the years and have worked especially hard these last several months to prepare the Virginia office for closing and moving to Miami.


Joining me in Miami as Development Services Manager is Katrina Davey. You can reach her at 305.401.0378 or at OLRFMS@ourlittleroses.org. Katrina brings a wealth of experience from her years at United Way-Miami and, most recently, Friends of Trinity Cathedral, Miami.


Finally, as we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Diana Frade's founding of Our Little Roses in San Pedro Sula, the board of OLRFMS has adopted several goals intended to secure a strong financial foundation for Our Little Roses Ministries -- expanding the number of sponsors, increasing general support and expanding the number of regional special events. Each of these goals ultimately ensures a secure financial foundation to meet the ongoing and pressing needs and services of the ministry -- and the girls.


Words are not enough to thank you for your support. I look forward to working with you in the months and years ahead as together we continue to support the vital work of Our Little Roses Ministries in Honduras.

God's peace and blessings!

Sponsor A Child   

There are many ways to support Our Little Roses, but one of the most valuable is to sponsor a girl. This gives the home an assurance of a steady source of support for a girl for several years -- hopefully until she becomes an adult. Sponsorships are $720 per year, which may seem like a lot, but paid quarterly ($180) or monthly ($60) is quite manageable.


If you sponsor a girl, you will receive a certificate and a photo, and you are welcome to correspond with the girl you sponsor. 


Or you may wish to sponsor the educational tuition for one of our girls attending Holy Family Bilingual School, a special needs private school or university. Education is vital to transforming their lives. 

For more information, please contact the OLRFMS office at 305.401.0378  or 1-800-849-9252 or email OLRFMS@ourlittleroses.org. OLRFMS is a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) charitable organization. All contributions are tax-deductible in accordance with the law.
