Casa Monte Plata Children's Home

Monte Plata | Dominican Republic

In 1984, a Dominican couple was burdened to provide an education to the poorest children in their region. This small beginning eventually grew to include family-style residential homes where needy children could be cared for physically, emotionally, and spiritually. read more »

The Fruit of Hope at Casa Monte Plata Children’s Home

Sarah* and her brother Daniel* were among the first kids to enter Casa Monte Plata when it opened over 12 years ago. Previously, they had been almost living at the Eva Russell School due to an unstable, dysfunctional family situation.

While continuing to attend the school, Sarah blossomed in the environment at Casa Monte Plata where she finally had a peaceful, loving home. She began to thrive spiritually, academically, and physically. Two years ago, she finished high school, moved into our independence home, and began studying accounting at the university level on a Kids Alive scholarship. What a joy it was for us to hire Sarah as a full-time accountant and administrative assistant at Casa Monte Plata! It is wonderful to watch a needy, vulnerable child be transformed into a vibrant Christian who humbly serves others with her skills and abilities. Her joy and passion are a gift to everyone in our community.

Life at Casa Monte Plata

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.
