El Amor de Patricia is a home for abandoned, abused and neglected children where they are loved, appreciated and encouraged to reach their full potential in a family style setting. We do this by providing stability, resources, healthy nutrition, a good education, medical and dental care, and a faith based environment to help integrate them into the Guatemalan culture. The children at El Amor de Patricia will have a home, not just a shelter, for as long as they need one. Most importantly, the children are in a safe, stable environment cared for by compassionate and loving nannies who celebrate each child's individuality, talents and development. This method of care allows each child the opportunity to learn to bond with their care givers and the other children while living as a family. Our children have real life experiences. They go to the movies and the circus. They take dance classes and soccer. They go to private schools and go to therapy. This is real life for these precious kids. Just like you and me.
