|The soon to be Outreach Center|
Many times family members are not compliant with therapy recommendations because the process is uncomfortable for the patient and they don't like it. Our hope is to have the parents and caregivers come to our center and we will coach and encourage them to do the needed exercises and movements to prevent further deterioration of their bodies. Adults often have no one who will do their therapy exercises with them, and we will fill that gap.
|Roberto, one of our residents, working with Blanca|
who comes to us for educational therapy
A number of younger children or those with more significant disabilities in our town do not receive any educational services. There is a quality special needs school in the next town, but it is a formal school program and often these children have be isolated and are not socially, emotionally, or behaviorally ready to attend school. We are working with them to develop the needed skills to go to school, or, in the case of more severely limited children, will work to develop whatever abilities they have.
|This is Lester, an eight year old with a severe heart|
problem who is unable to walk. Through our Outreach
we were able to provide his mom with a jogging stroller so
she no longer needs to carry him up the mountain on her back.
Because of the men living in the home, and especially Fidel's recycling business, our house is already known as a place people can come for help. Through these programs we hope to become more open to the community, meet the people's human needs, and lead them to know Jesus who can meet their every need. What an honor and a privilege.
