Emmanuel Home of Protection
Welcome to our website and thank you for visiting us here.
The Emmanuel Home of Protection is a ministry of Baptist Medical and Dental Mission Int'l that is located in Diriamba, Nicaragua and provides protection for young ladies who have been victims of abuse. We provide a loving and safe environment where thes young ladies receive spiritual, emotional and psychological support, education, pre-vocational training, food, clothing and shelter. These young ladies may or may not have family, but have been placed in our care beccause of their need for special protection.
We also function as a Center of Prevention. Under this program, at-risk young ladies stay with us during the week to receive much of the same attention that our full-time residents receive. In most cases these young ladies have family, but for various reasons live in situations where they are at high risk of being abused or falling into a destructive lifestyle. These young ladies return to their homes on the weekends when there is a higher level of supervision from their working parents.
We also have a few young ladies who fall under our Transition Plan. These are young ladies who are over 18 years of age and have no other place to go. The young ladies in this plan are in the process of finishing their education, are studying in a university or are starting to work and saving up for a time when they can start a life on their own.
Please take time to look around on our site where you can read about recent events at the Home or you can view pictures of the girls and possibly choose to sponsor one of them.
