Ark Jarabacoa Children's Home

Jarabacoa | Dominican Republic

Ark Jarabacoa is Kids Alive’s oldest and largest residential facility. The 45 children who have been rescued from difficult and painful circumstances live in family-style homes, cared for holistically by our dedicated staff. Not only are their immediate physical needs met, but they receive a quality education, emotional support, and spiritual training. The Ark also supports 10 young adult graduates who live in transition homes or with families in the local community. read more »

The Face of Hope at Ark Jarabacoa 

Anabel* came to the Ark 10 years ago after her mother died. The trauma took its toll on her, both physically and emotionally, but our staff was committed to helping her grow stronger and begin to heal. Even after she began growing physically stronger, she struggled to mature emotionally. She was easily frustrated, often quitting a school assignment if she encountered a problem. Losing her temper on the soccer field became a liability to her team and hurt her relationships with teammates. For the past two years, our counselor and other staff have worked to help Anabel learn techniques to better regulate her emotions, and we are seeing significant improvements.

In the classroom, she is showing real perseverance, which is leading to better grades. We were thrilled to see her display great composure in a recent soccer tournament where there were some emotionally charged games. Her team made it all the way to the final game of a prestigious national tournament! Anabel is truly blossoming in so many areas of her life, and we are excited to watch what God continues to do with this precious girl in the future.

Life at Ark Jarabacoa

Our campus houses orphaned and abandoned children in family-style homes with loving, attentive house parents. In most cases, the kids have been through difficult and painful circumstances before coming to us, and we count it a privilege to give them a safe place to live and recover from their traumatic pasts.
