Pacita Home for Girls

“The purpose of the home is to:

  • Serve, develop and protect children in need of special protection and their families through a holistic approach to improve their well being and quality of life.
  • Give young people the opportunity to reach their full potential through education, livelihood training, health services, community programs, and Christian care to break the bonds of poverty.”

Monday May 30th, we were greeted with warm smiles and happy hearts as the girls from the Pacita house excitedly awaited our visit.

Due to the nature of this home and for the girls protection we can not show the identity of the girls in our photos

We treated the girls to a new haircut, painting their nails, playing games and our time. It’s incredible to see how just a little bit of our love brightened their day.

What we realized is how much more their love brightened ours.


Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be. Rita F. Pierson
