In view of the profound economic poverty and political upheaval that has rocked Honduras, the need to care for and protect children and teenagers is more urgent than ever.Casa Alianza Honduras was opened in 1987 and has three residential centers serving children and teenagers in desperate need of our support. In addition to providing crisis care to an average of 180 boys and girls every night, Casa Alianza Honduras also provides specialized care for girls victims of sexual exploitation and human trafficking, and for boys with harmful substance addiction problems.
“We who recognize God's providence and fidelity to His people are dedicated to living out His covenant among ourselves and those children we serve, with absolute respect and unconditional love. That commitment calls us to serve suffering children of the street, and to protect and safeguard all children. Just as Christ in His humanity is the visible sign of God's presence among His people, so our efforts together in the covenant community are a visible sign that effects the presence of God, working through the Holy Spirit among ourselves and our youth.”
