Prince of Peace Children’s Home opened in 2004 in response to the immense need Honduras has for the protection and restoration of abused and neglected children.
Since the first children were received in our home due to gang violence, our home has welcomed the most severe cases of child abuse, extreme poverty, and neglect.
These children have been declared to be at “social risk.” They cannot return to their homes due to a tremendous risk of being physically, sexually, emotionally and mentally abused by their own families.
All of our children have been brought to us through a government office, mainly the DINAF (National Institute for the Children and the Family), or in some special cases, through the Public’s Prosecutor Office for Children.
Our home is filled with God’s love – making it a real home for our kids, rather than simply a shelter. We strive to include the living Word of God in all aspects of their lives.
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Our home has been designed to give our boys and girls a sense of belonging and protection. They have their own beds and closet space, as well as clothes and toys of their own.
We have the capacity to hold just over 40 children. Our youngest infants and toddlers, boys and girls alike, live in the main house with the older girls. All boys over 8 years of age live in the Boys House just a few steps away. Our property in Zambrano provides abundant space for all of them to play outdoors.
God has placed these children in our hands until they reach the age of 18. They live with members of our dedicated staff. We provide for their food, medical care, clothing, and the best education that our financial means can provide. Upon arrival they soon begin to attend our Christian bilingual school, Faith Academy.
