Girls Night Out - May 1, 2014

Women's Retreat with Fr. O'Donnell - May 9-11, 2014  

 

Amigos de Jesús (Friends of Jesus) is a home for impoverished children in Honduras.  For them, Amigos de Jesús is a safe haven.  It is their school, playground, bedroom, chapel and above all, their family. 

We provide food, clothing, shelter, education and love to over 85 children living at our orphanage. Big-eyed preschoolers, young boys, adolescents, and young adults who used to eat out of garbage cans now eat in our dining hall, sleep in our dorms, pray in our chapel, work in our woodshop, and learn life skills in our school.

Amigos de Jesús also supports hundreds of impoverished children living in local villages and shelters in other parts of Honduras, and in Guyana. This is done through our Padrino (Sponsor a Child) Program.

Everything we do is for the children. At Amigos de Jesús, we work to help boys and girls grow up to be healthy, independent Hondurans who will, in turn, help lift the spirits of other children struggling to survive in one of Central America’s poorest nations.

In December 2010, Amigos de Jesús began a Construction Campaign to grow our home’s capacity to 180 children.  It has long been the dream of Fr. O’Donnell and the Board of Directors to house girls as well as boys on-site.  In early 2012 the first new dormitories opened and we welcomed our first girl into our home.
