Our full-time boys home, typically averaging 8 boys at a time, rescues children and teens from lifestyles of substance abuse and living on the streets after dealing with neglect, abuse and extreme poverty at the hands of their families. The boys come into our home through the contact of our outreach program and feeding center. We are there when they decide they want to make a change in their lives. We transition them into rehab centers and then into our home with legal permission of their parents/guardians. They come voluntarily, and although they are making a commitment to our program, they are also free leave at any point. The government or parent does not provide financial support. The Mission cares for 100% of their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
Our desire is to help these kids step out of the orphan mindset and into new identities as children in the family of the King of Kings. We believe we are raising up the next generation of world leaders, educators, fathers and mothers, skilled craftsmen, artists, scientists, and more by intentionally showing them the Father’s love in an environment that encourages individuality, grows decision making skills, and seeks relationship with our Heavenly Father.
What the Boys’ Home Offers
Our home accepts children mostly voluntarily from the parents or guardians and at rare times from the juvenile court system.
As of 2018, the boys in both our boy’s home and their target outreach we are 95% voluntary and 5% from the court system. The Mission does not receive subsidies from the Nicaraguan government to cover the costs of the care of the children they place with us.
The children receive routine medical check-ups, dental care, and an education (preschool through college). Our number one priority is teaching the children their identity in Christ and His love for them!
