A ministry for abused girls and strengthening the families of Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
In addition to providing the opportunity to share the gospel of salvation, the New Heart Foundation has the mission of bringing the love of Jesus Christ to children who suffer from violence & psychological, physical, and/or sexual abuse, providing a safe environment to protect them.
New Heart has opened a home for girls who have been sexually abused and receives girls up to 12 years old (upon entry). They provide a safe and friendly environment where they can receive comprehensive care. It is a family setting where each girl is loved individually so that their heart can be restored and they have the opportunity for a brighter future.
Apart from the home for girls, the New Heart Foundation actively is involved in the local community to strengthen families and prevent the same abuse that results in so many girls ending up in homes around Santa Cruz. They do this through:
- Mom’s Club Bible Studies
- Sexual Abuse Prevention Seminars in Local Schools
- Workshops for Teachers and Parents
- Hygiene and Medical Trainings for Local Families
The ministry is supervised by a board that consists of pastors from 3 different local churches. Local churches are actively involved in the ministry by visiting the ministry to spend time with the girls, donating certain items to meet physical needs, and lovingly welcoming them into their church family.
