Currently, 40 to 50 children are cared for in two homes in the city of Quito and a home in the town of Latacunga.

Village Church and For His Children share a rich 20-year history with 185 church members participating in mission trips to For His Children. These trips provide encouragement to the staff, assistance with needed projects on campus, and loving support to the children at For His Children.

Village Church’s financial gifts have allowed children who have experienced trauma to begin healing and have hope for a better future, through expert caregivers and lots of love. Each child receives physical, emotional, and spiritual care while at For His Children. They have a team advocating on their behalf so they can experience a safe and loving forever family. Church members are encouraged to connect and partner with the ministry in the following ways.
