Our Mission

Village of Hope (VOH) will be caring for special needs orphans in San Lucas, Guatemala and teaching them about the love of Jesus Christ. The vision for Village of Hope was born out the knowledge that God has a heart for the least of these. Scripture reveals a God who is passionate about the sick, the widow, the orphan, the alien and the poor.

Our purpose is to provide family, faith and a future to the least of these by providing holistic orphan care to special needs orphans, primarily focused on those living with HIV/AIDS. To avoid an institutional living atmosphere and provide an family style setting. Our hope is to create a family unit as God intended: to provide life-long support and to teach children Christian life values.

VOH logo 2014Because international adoptions from Guatemala are closed, there is little hope of the children ever begin adopted into forever families. One part of our vision is to develop relationships with the Guatemalan Evangelical churches, to come along side of them, educating them on God’s heart for the orphan, and opening their eyes to the gift of adoption.

Our purpose is to provide family, faith and a future to the least of these by providing holistic orphan care to special needs orphans, primarily focused on those living with HIV/AIDS.

 IMPACT of Village of Hope:

  • Providing family, faith and future to orphans with HIV/AIDS
  • Building & operation of group homes
  • Outreach to the community
  • Offering hope in Christ-teaching biblical truth
