WELCOME TO THE VILLAGE
Breath of Heaven is thoroughly committed to facilitating and fostering as normalized a family-experience for our kids as possible. That is why we have chosen the “household model” for the care of our children as opposed to the more common institutional approach to orphan-care. Each of the residences has 1270 square feet of space which accommodates two full bathrooms, a bedroom for the House Mother, three more bedrooms with four youngsters in each, a dining/living room, kitchen, and pantry. An Auntie comes in each morning to help the House Mother with the care of the 12 children and the daily chores.
We now have 8 of 14 slated Children’s Homes up and running. These homes provide safety, shelter and a nurturing environment for kids who have no place else to go. The cost of building one of these dwellings is roughly $35,000 USD. Furnishing them is an additional $5,000 USD. Every home completed results in 12 more children being rescued from a life of misery and despair!
