-They enjoy the movies Ice Age and Dory in the theater.

-We are having fun and enjoying our summer.
We receive volunteer that help us around the Home; cleaning, fixing thing, playing with the kids, bringing school materials and others. Some of the volunteers were from Kentucky and from New Jersey, doing missionary work. We feel very honor for their work and dedication.
The beginning of school period: we are preparing for the school to start on the 8th of August:
-At the moment we have twelve kids going to school, from Head Start to Fourth grade.
-At the Home we provide for all their school materials, uniforms and other they may need, this is possible with the help of volunteers and with your help.
-This summer we received back packs and some materials.
-At the moment we are working to provide the uniforms.
-They are attending to public schools (community schools) but they require uniforms and some special materials, tennis shoes and other requirements and we have to provide for them.
We need your help to provide for our kids needs;
-For specialize medical attention, medicines, school materials, and for everything they may need.
-We are also working to acquire the funds to pay the salaries for the Caregivers, the persons that work directly with their needs, their care in everyway possible.
- We are experiencing a growth in child abuse; we are constantly receiving calls to receive children.
- With the economic changes around the world we are experiencing a big cut in the funds the grant’s support to the Home and our children and the funds received from the community and the volunteers are also affected.
