Young People Residence? An unresolved problem

Looking inside the residences of children and adolescents whose rights have been violated, the groups that generate most challenges in relation to the management of the coexistence are, precisely, the adolescents; the more we can say about the young adults of 18 years or more, the most have not completed their secondary education, and adding to the difficulties, there are no original family networks or surrogates in which we can visualize a possible successful outcome.

On the other hand, psychological emotional repairs are mediocre due to the high turnover of professionals inside of the residence, colleagues who fail to generate therapeutic links or that never carry out the therapies because “the young do not want to go to the sessions”, and do not want to talk about the pain of abandonment or the pain of remembering the violence that their own family deny.

Breanna – I am an intern at the House of Hope

breanna 1

Hello!  My name is Breanna and I’m an intern at the House of Hope.  I arrived on June 19 and I’ll be here until December 9th, living here in the HOH with several amazing young women.  As a Youth and Social Ministry major at Crown College, this six month internship is an incredible opportunity for God to train and equip me to become the servant He created me to be.  I feel strongly that I have a calling to those who are broken and hurting with deep heart-wounds.  I hope one day to become a counselor and deal with these wounds by introducing the wounded to the ultimate Healer, Jehovah-rapha, Jesus Christ.  Continue reading Breanna – I am an intern at the House of Hope

Claudia Gutierrez On Saturday, June 21, 2014, I was honored to be the “father of the bride.”  Approximately seventeen years ago, I met a beautiful twelve-year-old girl by the name of Claudia Gutierrez.  She was living at the Hogar La Granja in La Pintana, Santiago, Chile.  She lived there for fifteen years.  Claudia was very special to me, and became my Chilean daughter.  At age eighteen, she left the Hogar and for six years, we lost track of each other.  At age twenty-five, we reconnected.  She came to live at the House of Hope (HOH).

The HOH is a home for young women coming out of hogares and other undesirable situations.  Continue reading Claudia my Chilean daughter

“The online store is a really important step for us because we are trying to show hope in the work we do and now we have the opportunity to share our hope with everyone. When you buy a piece of our product, you take some of our hope with you and that means a lot for us because it is not just about us receiving, but about us learning to give.” -President of Showing Hope, Estefania Layseca, House of Hope.
Young women I am excited to share with you one of the projects I have been working on while here at House of Hope and that is the online store called Showing Hope. I think having an online store will bring more structure to their business and teach the ladies how to plan for the future and not just day to day. The goal is to have the business be self-sustainable, so by opening an online store and sharing the work of the ladies to the public is a great way to capture a larger audience. We want to let people know more about the lives of these women and why they need your help in the success of this business because it may affect the success of their personal future one day. Please visit our online store and share with family and friends! The store is available for US sales and the products are available in both the US and Chile only. -Volunteer worker, Alicia Lloyd
