At 18 years old, many orphans are released from orphanages to their own fate with no support finding themselves homeless, without a job and with few skills to live. The lure of crime to survive in this country is real. And thus, the cycle of poverty continues for many. Our programs are designed to integrate youth safely from orphanage into society, and stop the cycle of poverty from continuing in Honduras.
THE ALEXANDER HOUSE
Whoot whoot!! We’re’ over 50% of our goal to open our first transition home for 4-6 orphaned adolescent boys in 2018! Our home will provide a short-term, safe place to live where boys like Alex and Ivan can continue their education, find employment, learn necessary life-skills, enhance their faith journey, and serve their community by mentoring others. In short, we will be preparing them to live confidently on their own.
CURRENT MENTOR PROGRAMS
We also currently employ and have Heart4Honduras (H4H) volunteers who work with orphanages in San Pedro Sula. They organize fun activities such as hiking, trips to the beach, soccer games, and volunteer outreaches. Recently, we partnered with Identity Mission to run weekly devotionals at the homes. These opportunities allow for our H4H mentors and volunteers to form friendships with the youth allowing us to speak into their lives. We encourage them to learn English, stay in school, and help with any emotional issues that arise.
