Jean Caceres-Gonzalez
Founder of
His House Children’s Home.

His House Children’s Home Founder, Jean Caceres-Gonzalez graduated from Oral Roberts University with a degree in Spanish and minors in Business Administration and Commercial Art and began a successful career at a foreign language publishing company.  With experience as a missionary in Mexico and the Amazon, Jean dreamt of opening a home for needy children in the Miami area. In June of 1989, she took a leap of faith, left her position and established His House Children’s Home, a non-profit residential program and child placement agency for abused, neglected and drug-exposed children.  

Under Jean’s nearly 25 years as leader of the organization, His House has provided hope, love and a safe place to call home for 9,000 children in South Florida.  The agency, which employs over 250 staff members, is accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA).

As a result of Jean’s vision, His House Academy, located right on the campus of His House, offers at-risk children from K-8th grade a faith-based private school education.  Accredited by the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools, the Academy is a trauma-sensitive learning environment and after-school program.

In 2008, in partnership with the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement, His House International was established to care for Unaccompanied Alien Children under the age of 18 who left their native countries due to gang violence, homelessness, economic hardship and abuse in hopes of starting a new life in the U.S.  This program includes residential care, education and culturally-appropriate activities.  In 2013, this program was expanded to a 93-bed facility for this population and in the last 5 years has cared for over 1,700 immigrant children.

After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the agency provided temporary care and expedited adoptions for over 500 orphans and their pre-adoptive families.

As founder and leader of His House, Jean has made frequent appearances on local and national media, serving as a voice for children who desperately need someone to speak for them.  Throughout her career, she has been the recipient of much local recognition.  In 2012, she was honored as Alumnus of the Year by Oral Roberts University and selected Chairman of the Board for the National Association of Christian Child and Family Agencies.

Today, Jean plays many roles within the organization, and is just as comfortable as “Mami Jean” at a birthday party or speaking to a large civic or church organization on behalf of His House.  Jean and her husband, Mario, are parents to Jordan, Julianne and James.
