Connect Kids to a Family

Casa Viva exists to provide lifegiving solutions for children who have been separated from their families in the developing world, by working with local churches to connect a child to a family.

We believe children have a bright future and will make a positive impact in their communities. Our responsibility is to meet the child at their point of need, to help integrate their past into their present experience, to walk alongside them in their journeys, and to infuse hope into their future.

We exist because we believe our first response to children separated from their families should always be a living family and their community of relationships. We believe a living family offers to a child what he desperately needs—attachment and connection within circles of care.

The idea of families caring for children in their own homes is new in Costa Rica. Yes, foster care is common in North America and Europe, but not in Latin America. We are advocating to see care solutions that are based in family first. We’re keeping it simple yet significant. The local church can do this. Families can open their front doors. Our sights are on the statistics, and seeing streams of care spread throughout Latin America and the world
