OUR CHILDREN

We offer supportive care for twenty-nine children and their families through our Hogar Christiano Nicaraguense (HCN) or Nicaraguan Christian Home. Our HCN partners with each child and his other family to improve quality of life and to work toward opportunities to rise above material poverty toward holistic health. We strive daily to work with each child and family in our program in the areas of spiritual nurturing, housing, proper medical care, nutrition, service and excellence in education.

The children arrive at the HCN each weekday at 6:00 a.m. They are fed breakfast and then bussed to a locally-run, well-established school in León. The children return in the afternoon for tutoring, computer lab, counseling, and a meal before they head home at 4:00 p.m. Our psychologist and educational psychologist follow up with the children and their families on a regular basis to provide encouragement, support, training and accountability through both home visits as well as on-site meetings.
