"God sets the lonely into FAMILY"
In leading orphans to the Father-heart of God, our primary goal is to create adoptive-style families for completely orphaned children. FHF Families will live together in one of 8 family homes in the FHF village, and some will begin in some of the 10 apartment suites (to be constructed in 2019, Lord willing and funds permitting).

Due to malnutrition, neglect, crime, and poor-quality education facilities, our community is desperately in need of a place where children can learn and discover their God-given potential. School drop-outs because of gang membership and teenage pregnancy are rampant, and only 4 out of every 60 elementary school graduates continue to high school. But we believe that, if given the proper tools and resources, children in the community will cultivate a sense of purpose and the ability to take ownership of their life choices, rather than resorting to the cultural "norms".
‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
Christian Education and Orphan Care
A key component for holistic care is the education of our children. And, as in every area of the FHF village, our education will also be holistic, teaching and caring for the spirit, soul, and body.
We have already begun with helping some children attend the public school and even University, and we have done Children's Church ("Sunday school") for the past 9 years, but our focus is now on developing an Academic Education Program.
We will teach both core academic subjects, like: reading, writing, social studies, math, science, technology, engineering, and agriculture; as well as extra-curricular subjects, like: music, arts, sports, second language, home economics, and life-skills. All FHF education will have both a focus and a foundation on the Word of God.
Education Program for
We began a Pilot Program in 2018, and are developing an education program for at-risk children in our community. Programs to be developed may include: Tutoring, Christian Montessori, Basic Literacy, and correspondence help for children who are not in school or who are struggling in school. We will also be teaching and providing good nutrition , and other family-focused learning courses.
The above Educational programs will be developed and implemented within the FHF Village and community outreach. It is also part of the vision and over-all goal of FHF to purchase adjoining property for the establishment of a private Christian high school, which will serve all (100+) children who are adopted into the family of the FHF village, to ensure that they have a solid Christian Education. This school will also serve the surrounding communities, and will be open for enrolment for any Salvadoran or international family that satisfies our enrolment process. We will strive to supersede all national educational expectations and to meet or exceed international Christian Education standards.
