Casa Monte Plata is located in one of the poorest provinces of the Dominican Republic and serves almost 40 children and youth in family-style homes. We teach orphaned and abandoned youth about the richness of God’s redeeming love, giving them tools to break cycles of poverty and hopelessness. The ministry includes transition housing, independence training, and university scholarships for young adults. read more »
Miguel* came to Casa Monte Plata years ago after his life fell apart. His mother died and his father, who struggled with substance abuse, was unable to care for or provide for him. In those dark days, he felt like there was no hope. But our great God stepped in! From the moment he entered our program, Miguel was loved and nurtured holistically. He was given physical safety, healthy food, and quality academic instruction while also learning about the love of God. What a joy to see him grow in gratefulness to God, instead of giving into bitterness for the trauma of his past.
Last year, Miguel graduated from high school, moved into a transition house, and took a year-long English course where he studied for four hours every day. He recently accepted a fulltime job with Casa Monte Plata, working in maintenance, general support, and transportation. It has always been his dream to study law and he hopes to start university soon. We feel privileged to watch Miguel grow, thrive, and succeed, and we know God will do great things through this young man!

Site Partnership allows for services that reach beyond the basics of what Child Sponsorship provides, supplying resources for trauma training and therapy, nutritionists, social workers, educational counselors, discipleship, and more.
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.
