One Generation Alliance
Rancho la Hermosa is the first orphanage established out of Dave and Shannon Edmondson’s organization, One Generation Alliance. The name One Generation Alliance is birthed out of a prayer that God would give one generation of children to significantly impact who would then impact their future generations. The goal is to root these children in the love of God knowing that the power of His love will dramatically change the trajectory of their lives and break the cycle of poverty and abuse.
Dave and Shannon had started their non-profit, One Generation Alliance also in 2008, out of their passion for Jesus and His mandate to love and care for the orphan. They redefined their mission from helping orphanage directors care for their homes to also open a One Generation home. Years ago, they had met Sergio while working at another orphanage and, in 2015, felt led to contact him about opening their own home. He said he had been watching them and it was time to meet his brothers.
They met up on the hill on the four acre property and with great joy each discovered the unified desire to care for orphaned and abandoned children. God had brought them together. One Generation bought half of the property and the La Hermosa Church would use their half and the building for Phase 1 of the Rancho la Hermosa Orphanage to care for 30 children. The doors were opened in September, 2018, and Phase 2 is in progress. When completed, the Ranch will be able to care for 70 children all in smaller family units.
One Generation’s name is birthed out of a prayer that God would give one generation of children to significantly impact, who would then impact future generations - just the way it’s being done by Daniel, Sergio, and Francisco. God is good!
