Giving to Novō

Novō’s funding comes from both regular giving and one-off donations. Both are vital to our work. The supporters who give regularly are affectionately known as Padrinos. They are our Godparents – caring for our community.

What is a Padrino?

Novō depends on the generous support of individuals, churches, foundations, and businesses to accomplish its vision.

In Latino culture, Padrinos (or Godparents) are much more than honorific titles. Padrinos are involved in the lives of their godchildren in meaningful ways. By supporting Novō financially, you become a Novō Padrino, providing our residents with the precious opportunity to find freedom from addiction and new life in Christ.

Hear from our residents

Meet Ronald

Ronald arrived at our home in Santa Cruz after a long battling with drug and alcohol addiction. He found a family at Quinta Totaices and attributes his successful rehabilitation to the structure he experienced and the care he received.

Meet Pepe

For 15 years, Pepe was lost in alcoholism. He lived in Argentina, but this alcohol addiction led him to lose everything, before then finding Novō Communities in Bolivia.

Meet Benigno

Since Benigno was 7 years old, he has lived on the streets of Santa Cruz. When he was 11 years old, he went to a dining room for street kids where some of the kids introduced him to clefa (glue). He became addicted.
