Hidden on the side of a mountain, outside Guatemala City, Casa Bernabe is home to over 100 children. These children live within nine different family units, where they are cared for by a loving Christian couple and are able to experience, often for the very first time, what it means to live in a family. Casa Bernabe provides each of these children with food, shelter, medical care, education, vocational training, and above all Christ-centered holistic care. Most of them were rescued from neglect, abuse, or abandonment and need ongoing psychological as well as spiritual care. Each and every one of these children experience the fullness of Christ’s healing love at Casa Bernabe.
Transitional Living Program
Our Transitional Living Program helps young adults over age 18 learn to work, attend school, and acquire life skills in preparation for launching into Guatemalan society. Casa Bernabé has a house off campus for 4 young women who are working and attending school, while learning life skills like cooking, budgeting, and home upkeep. In 2016 we opened a new home for young men on the Casa Bernabé campus which allows them to work and continue their studies while living in a family home environment.
