In August of 2013, Hope for Home Ministries opened their first family-based group home for children with special needs in San Antonio Aguas Caliented, Guatemala. Named Hogar de la Esperanza (Hope Home) this ministry provides a loving and healing home for children with disabilities. Each child receives lots of love from a real family, top quality medical care, therapy and education while also learning of the love of Jesus Christ.
The long-term goal is to open 10 group homes based upon this model. Currently plans are underway to open a second home, Hogar de la Fe (Faith Home). Michael and Kelly Gross will be joining our Guatemala team during the summer of 2016 and hope to begin the licensing process in 2017. As God provides the personnel and resources more homes will be opened.
