Hogar De Vida is a transitional home for kids ages birth to 10 years old, located in a rural setting about three miles outside of Atenas. We take in abandoned children in hospitals and children in need of recuperation from neglect and physical abuse. Our goal is to protect and love them for the period of time the children are in our care. Hogar de Vida currently houses up to 35 children at any given time. The three homes on the property provide a secure environment, clothing, nutrition, education, parental figures, and most importantly an opportunity to know Jesus and receive His love. We have a paid psychologist, a nutritionist, a nurse, a secretary as well as 40+ paid staff including early childhood caregivers and maintenance.
Children who come to Hogar de Vida have often times lost a sense of belonging and trust for their basic needs. Hogar de Vida desires to nurture and develop their spirit and form them in Christ. Children at the home are given opportunity to learn, to discover and to experience the love of Jesus through the love of His people. By immersing them in the love of Jesus and covering them in prayer, the children begin to open their heart to healing. In the most formative years of a child's life, we want to plant the seeds of faith so they can carry that with them as they return home or get placed with their heart family.
Hogar de Vida keeps children safe while their families are given the opportunity to heal. While the children are in our care we provide a loving stable environment where children can begin to recover from abuse and neglect. Restoration is a journey and happens through the reconciling act of Jesus Christ. We believe in restoration nd we believe in healing. He heals the brokenhearted
and bandages their wounds. Psalms 147:3
