Welcome to Homes of Life

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."  
Matthew 19:14

Established in 1995, Homes of Life (Hogar de Vida in Spanish) is a Christian ministry in Latin America that exists to serve the needs of at risk children in Costa Rica and Guatemala.  The missionary work of each home has its own unique objectives and challenges. However, both homes return abundant blessings to the children being cared for, as well as, the people who support this ministry.  The founders Tim and Dena Stromstad, along with dedicated staff and volunteers, minister to the precious children at risk and provide a safe, nurturing place to learn about God's love for them in Christ.  Many children arrive completely destitute, without a family's care or basic provisions that many people take for granted.  Often the victims of abuse or neglect, the children's needs are met by the patience and hard work of caring men and women as well as through your support.

If you're looking for a reputable organization to donate or participate in life-changing mission trips, we hope you'll prayerfully consider Homes of Life. We count on the generosity of volunteers, donors and other organizations who share our dedication to the well-being of children around the world.  As you explore this website, you'll see the many opportunities that the Lord has given us.

Come help us with the Lord's work!



Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one whom I praise.

Formation of Children


Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
