Victor held one corner of the mattress underneath his arm, and Chuy balanced the other end on his lap, as his caregiver glided his wheelchair across the pristine floor. Both teens grinned as they hauled the mattress into the new bedroom. After months of watching construction workers and architects develop and build brand new homes, it was finally move-in day!
“The teens were excited to be a part of moving their belongings,” shared Ethan Drent, Back2Back staff. Currently, the new house parents we have hired are spending times with teens, hanging out under the palapa and playing games; everyone is working intentionally on developing stronger connections.”
As the teens adjust to new house parents and a new home, construction has begun on the multi-resource center on the property. This center will provide therapies and space to serve not only the teens at Rancho, but children in the neighboring communities whose families cannot afford specialized, physical care.
Back2Back Mazatlán thanks each of you who’ve given your time, energy, prayers, and finances to create newer, more spacious homes for each teen at Rancho de los Niños Children’s Home. Please join us in prayer as the teens continue to adjust to new transitions, new space, and new, safe adults in their life. Thank you for partnering in being the difference for one.
