February 2017 Mission Trip a Success!

A total of 18 Mission Volunteers travelled to Colombia this past week to work with our kids and to help with the construction of the new home.  They helped us kick off a new English program for the children, hosted art classes, dance classes, worked in the kitchen, did maintenance around the home, took the children on a field trip, and spent the week making 170 new little friends.  At the new home site the volunteers installed new flooring in two of our new buildings and finished painting the exteriors.  It was an amazing trip and we accomplished so much.  Thank you to everyone who participated and everyone that helped make their participation possible.Emiliani Mission Trip

Bring Home the Kids Campaign

The Bring Home the Kids fundraising campaign is still going hot!  We are currently at 38% of our goal of $100,000 for the construction of the commercial kitchen and dining room facility at our new children’s home.  We want to get this built by this summer to stay on track to open the home to the first group of 30 children by Spring 2018.  Help us get to our goal by going to Bring Home the Kids or Contact Us to become an Ambassador of the campaign.  As an Ambassador, we’ll set up a campaign page for you and make it Facebook/internet ready for you to send links to your friends, family and co-workers.  It’s super easy and a fun way to engage the people you love in a good cause.
