In progress

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.

Education building

When Covid started, there were 3 rooms that they could use for their learning centre and they were able to have school at home. This year, they changed to an online Christian learning platform, with university students helping out with the younger children by teaching, supplementing themes and evaluating preschool, elementary, junior high and high school.

They are now using every room upstairs! The rooms are done, with some finishing work left to do, tile to lay and bathrooms to be plumbed in.

The new dining hall on the lower level of the building coming along and is 95% finished. The girls have even had an opportunity to participate and cut boards with the saw for the kitchen. The new kitchen is spacious and includes a large pantry, a commercial fridge and mixer. There are two large double doors that open into a courtyard for bigger events like Quinceanera's.

"We are so humbled that we are able to be part of what God is doing in the lives of the girls at El Refugio and in our community as well."
