The Covenant House in Casa Alianza provides care and protection for boys and girls who have experienced extraordinary trauma, including abuse, neglect, violence, abandonment, addiction to harmful substances, sexual exploitation and human trafficking. They were established in 1981, and also have locations in Nicaragua and Guatemala in addition to their Mexico branch.

In this region of Mexico, many parasites such as Ascaris lumbricoides- roundworms, Trichuris trichiura- whipworms, Necator americanus, and Ancylostoma duodenale- hookworms are present in the soil. These parasites make suitable footwear a dire need for children inhabiting these areas.
