La Casa de Mi Padre Casa de Gozo

Fundación La Casa de mi Padre
Santo Tomas, El Salvador

Maestro Cares Foundation joined efforts with Sistema Fedecredito to build a new foster home named Casa de Gozo. The third foster home of what will be a complex of eight, operated and run by the local Foundation, La Casa de mi Padre.

Casa de Gozo, along with the other homes in the complex, were created with the idea of providing children with an environment as similar to a real family as possible. This is why La Casa de mi Padre trains a married couple to be foster parents alongside their biological children to live with the foster boys and girls. This way, the foster parents will educate them, love them and care for them as they do with their own children.

La Casa de mi Padre’s goal is to model a healthy home environment for children from high-risk areas exposed to physical, psychological and sexual abuse. At La Casa de mi Padre, not only are children provided with a home, family and basic needs, but they also receive private education, individual and group therapy, family strengthening programs, spiritual workshops and recreational activities.
