Angeles Custodios is an orphanage run by the Carmelite Sisters of the Sacred Heart in La Ceja, Colombia and cares for 80 children.

Boys Home – Nuestro Pequeño Hermanos

When the Honduran government shut down their childcare services division due to ineffectiveness, all government run children’s homes were closed as well. As a result  Nuestro Pequeño Hermanos received 75 children in just one month and faced both a baby boom and a housing crisis. One of their existing buildings could provide the space but…

New Home – Hogar De Amor

Hogar de Amor, in partnership with another charity, began the construction of a children’s home, which would house ten orphaned children and two house parents.

Children are placed at Eagles Nest through the court system. Now…

New Special Needs House – Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos

These homes care for extremely handicapped children in need of…
