Casa Buen Pastor

Refuge for Young Mothers

Casa Buen Pastor, another extension of Hogar de Niños, provides a refuge to young single mothers and their children. For many Honduran girls, this basic need is never met. Sometimes home, a place of supposed safety, becomes a place of abuse at the hands of fathers, stepfathers, and stepbrothers. Often these girls become pregnant and once they have children, they have nowhere to go. They and their infant children end up on the streets. At Casa Buen Pastor, these girls are now living under the care of a Christian staff, learning that their Heavenly Father is the only one who will never disappoint them.

Isaiah 40:11

He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.
