Rooting Families in Christ & Community
Our passion is keeping children in families in Central America. We believe children belong in families and God designed families for children. Many parents in Central America face the harsh reality that they do not have the financial means or opportunities to provide for their family.
Parents are often forced to make heart-wrenching decisions in order to provide for their family like feeding your child only one meal a day? Or separating the family while one parent seeks an employment opportunity afar? Or choosing which child can go to school because you can only afford one uniform? Or surrendering one or more of your children to an orphanage where you know they will be fed and clothed? These are just a few of the choices families may be forced to make.
Breaking the parent/child relationship can be detrimental to a child’s physical, emotional, and mental health and development. 80% of children who are orphans in Honduras have a living parent. We believe children should be rooted in families and should never be institutionalized if they have safe, loving parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, or other extended family members who would be happy to care for them if they had the means.
We exist to keep kids in families by investing in family business, community development, and education & discipleship. We partner with parents through providing small family business investments in the form of loans, grants, and unconditional cash gifts while also addressing other physical and social needs of the family in our Family Preservation Program.
