WHO WE ARE
His Children is a registered NGO (nonprofit / 501 C-3) created to help children and adolescents in the government and private orphanages in El Salvador. We implement projects to reunite families and show them the love and grace of God. We provide humanitarian aid to communities, families, and the Salvadoran people through projects and activities.
WHAT WE DO
We give hope and love to orphaned and abandoned children in El Salvador's orphanages; we teach them how to prepare for a job and how to build a relationship with God. We focus on helping the vulnerable ones, and we run transition houses for children aging out from orphanages. We feed communities and keep families together by building houses. We keep children off the streets and out of gangs. We teach others to be missionaries to the world.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that the Bible is the word of God. We believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died on the cross to forgive us of our sins. We believe in the Holy Spirit. We believe in the Trinity. We believe that God can do anything through prayer. We believe in Grace.

Also known as CBS program, short for "Community Bible Studies". Through this program we've been able to share the gospel in many different orphanages both government and private ones. We visit them at least once a week, teaching them about the love and grace of Jesus. We also include our transition houses in this program, we have a weekly devotional with all of them on Sundays.
Centers we work with
We work with the major orphanages in El Salvador, like CISNA, San Martin (Special Needs), San Vicente de Paul, Guirola and many more centers, both public and private. We also minister in juvenile prisons. We share the word of God with them, we do fun activities, sometimes we even get to take them out on a fun trip to places like the beach, bowling, movies or whatever we know they will like.
The project began in 2012, as one of the projects for Sus Hijos / His Children Foundation, supporting young adults and teenagers from both public and private children protection centers across El Salvador. When these teenagers turn eighteen, they are required to leave the centers where they have been most of their lives, forcing them into independence and a reality very different from what they are used to.
House Building Program
The main objective of the project is to provide a wood House or a concrete House for a family at risk of separating; when the government determines that a family doesn't meet the minimum criteria for good living conditions for the Child, he or she is considered to be taken away from their family to live in the orphanages.
That's when we come in.
We build houses thanks to the donations we receive from our donors, which God has always used to bless these lives.
Feeding the Homeless
It is our desire to see this ministry nourish not only the physical needs, but the spiritual needs of those who are often forgotten. Many of these are children who have run away or have reached the limit age to remain in the government centers.
We feed around 200 people in a run, we feed everyone on the streets: prostitutes, children, drunk and addicts. We don’t hold back, you shouldn’t either.
The cosmetology school project, born in the heart of our founder, was named to honor his mother's salon: “You're someone special” in Hampton, Virginia and was named after the phrase she always used when evangelizing.
This project teaches 6 different foster care centers. They receive classes throughout the week in 8 different classes, depending on the level of practice they have. They start from the very basics from how to use a hairdryer, wash hair, cut hair to a lot more.
So, you have a Church, Organization or group of friends that you want to bring to El Salvador? Or you have been praying about being a short-term missionary? We always can use medical missions and any other skill you may have to work with the communities and orphanages where we serve.
Our foundation prepares different events during the whole year, one day we would be making animal balloons with the kids or another day we would be all dressing up to celebrate a special moment. While most of these events are for the orphans in the centers, we would also have special celebrations for specific times of the year where we would have the States Diner restaurant prepare something special for its customers.
This is our biggest program so far, is a culinary school which includes States Diner restaurant, States Bakes Bakery, States Cafe Cafeteria that allow us to provide a job and most of the times a first job experience for these young boys and girls between the ages of 18 to 22 at risk who aged out of ISNA care (government institution)that are interested in culinary skills.
