Casa de Fe is a children’s home in beautiful Shell, Ecuador.
Casa de Fe welcomes all children, offering a safe place for them to experience Christ’s unconditional love.
One of the ways they do this is by introducing these precious children to Jesus and encourage them to have a relationship with him through prayer, singing praises and hearing God's word. By welcoming each child with open arms, they show Jesus’ unconditional love, which only comes from the Father.
Casa de Fe houses an average of 50 plus Ecuadorian children at any given time throughout the year.
These children range in age from newborn to teen. Approximately 30% of these children have some sort of disability.
Some children who come to us have contact with their families and the hope of being reunited. Others are cleared for adoption by the Ecuadorian government and are looking forward to a new forever family.
Support Our Mission
Support the family at Casa de Fe as they provide care for God's children in Shell.
As you can imagine, with this number of children, there are many needs to meet.
For example, housing 50-plus infants, children and teens require a lot of beds, pajamas, three healthy meals and two snacks a day. Plus, clothes, socks, toothbrushes and much more.
All children receive an education in local public schools. This requires uniforms, shoes, school supplies and transportation for 50-plus children five days a week.
Our children at Casa de Fe age out at 18 years old. To better prepare them for this transition, we provide on-campus vocational training in cosmetology, construction and sewing. This requires teachers, space and supplies. They are also taught everyday chores/skills by the Tia’s, such as cooking, cleaning and laundry, so they can lead self-sufficient lives outside of Casa de Fe. In addition to these, they are given the opportunity to explore higher education.
A home, nearing completion, will house our special needs adults. They too are being prepared for their Forever Home.
Like we say in the States, “It takes a village.”
Think about how you can help Casa de Fe. How can you be a part of this village? There are many opportunities to serve and/or support financially.
