The primary ministry is Casa Esther; a girls safe house in a family setting located on the premise of El Refugio, for teens and pre-teens who have been rescued from situations of violence, abuse, neglect, and/or prostitution/trafficking.
At Casa Esther the desire is to provide a safe, supportive, and loving environment where abandoned and at-risk children and teens are given the opportunity to get an education, receive counseling to resolve the pain they have suffered, learn invaluable life skills, and receive biblical training to help each individual grow and develop towards their full potential physically, emotionally, educationally, and spiritually. Equipping them to become upstanding citizens who love God and can affect change in their communities!
The project is to provide the girls with a large classroom upstairs to do their homework and tutoring. A conference rooms, a small chapel/counseling room, a physical education room, and offices are also a part of the expansion project. The downstairs will have a large kitchen divided in two so the girls can be taught cooking and baking skills.
