We are a Family »

Providing family-style care means Israel can confide in his house mom, Marlin, after a friend at school hurt his feelings. It means house parents, Joel and Viviana, can lead evening devotionals and pray with each boy before heading off to bed. Family-style care means dinners are no longer around a plastic table in a noisy cafeteria. Instead, the children gather around a wooden dinner table as a family and share about their day. Family-style care allows house parents to provide deeper care for each child as they navigate life’s challenges.

This children’s home for over seventy kids now has a very nice library made possible by a donation from The Rotary Club International and the tireless efforts of many of our ministry volunteers.

Shaken to the Core, by James Bush, Mexico Mission Trip Participant »

My recent trip to Monterrey, Mexico has messed with me in the deepest way possible. Majestic.  Beautiful.  Powerful.
