Since 2008, Siloé Ministries has provided medical care, health education, and family counseling to thousands of needy patients from a tiny two-room clinic in La Mision, Mexico. We've forged lasting relationships and earned our patients' trust through our long-term commitment to this small agricultural community.

The Siloé Wellness Center will be our organization's permanent home in the heart of the village we have served for the past 8 years. In addition to a well-equipped medical and dental clinic, the Center will also serve as a regional hub for health education, patient advocacy, Christ-centered family counseling, and medical-missions training. The community center and outdoor gardens will provide a peaceful and safe setting for the families of La Mision to gather and share fellowship for generations to come.

FAQs

The timetable for completing the Wellness Center project depends primarily on funding and permitting. Without interruptions, our goal would be completion by spring 2018. Because of the phased approach to construction, we will begin using certain portions of the center before the overall project is completed.
We are projecting construction costs of around $500,000. We have been told by experienced professionals that a similar project in the U.S. would cost more than $2 million. We are able to keep our constructions costs much lower thanks to affordable local labor and volunteers, and signifiant material donations.

This cost estimate does not include the property purchase, site preparation, and legal fees.

The entire Wellness Center project up to this point has been funded by charitable donations from individuals, churches, and foundations. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we welcome tax-deductible gifts of all sizes.

We are very excited to partner with Strong Tower Ministries, an experienced nonprofit that specializes in ministry-focused construction projects in Mexico. They are managing the construction of the Wellness Center, coordinating volunteers (both skilled and unskilled), overseeing local labor, and soliciting material donations. Strong Tower has successfully completed four similar projects in Baja, Mexico.
Yes, one of the great benefits of this project is providing steady work and reliable wages for a local construction crew. We have provided full-time employment for between 5-10 workers since the start of the Wellness Center project, and intend to continue providing excellent jobs for locals after the Wellness Center is complete, as well.
The Siloé site is owned free and clear by our Mexican nonprofit foundation, “Fundacion Comunitaria Siloé.” No individual has any ownership stake in the property.
The long-term sustainability of the Wellness Center is very important to us. We are making every effort to ensure that it can be affordably maintained and operated and that it will continue to serve the community for many years to come. For that reason, we are seeking to raise a maintenance endowment prior to the grand opening of the Wellness Center.
