We are currently walking the streets a couple of nights per week to connect with as many underage kids as we can find.
These are the number of meals delivered to the youth we find in the streets. We also feed any homeless adult who is hungry, as supplies allow.
Please help us create a safe and loving place for these children to heal and grow up.
Please consider helping us financially to make this vision a reality. Whether you’re looking to make a one-time donation, or in helping us with a set monthly donation, we are very appreciative! Very shortly we’ll be able to receive donations online.
About Casa Milagro
Casa Milagro Foundation is a nonprofit agency which exists to love, heal & empower children in Costa Rica who are at risk of, or who have been rescued from, human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation.
The majority of the children we work with have been sold into prostitution by their own families. We have thousands of such victims here. They have been severely abused physically, emotionally, and sexually.
Casa Milagro is currently delivering food and clothes to some of our thousands of homeless children, while concurrently working toward building a safe house and a drop-in center. The organization’s model of care is based on a holistic approach, focusing simultaneously on the areas of Personal Development, Education, Health and Community.
We hold in our hearts the vision of a world free of sexual exploitation, where children are nurtured, inspired and loved.
In the absence of family, the responsibility falls on the shoulders of the community to provide for the needs of these children. We will do whatever it takes to help them heal and thrive. Please consider joining our community!
Most of these children have never been to school at all. A well rounded education is necessary in order for these children to find jobs and to succeed as adults. Casa Milagro will ensure these children get the best education possible.
After such severe trauma, these children need not only professional therapy to heal past wounds, but also the life skills necessary to deal with future challenges.
Essential to the well being of our children is their health. Our model of care includes a holistic approach to health, which includes mental, emotional and physical health.
