Presenting a Need

Most of you are already familiar with the background of the Casa Shalom kids - nearly all come from broken homes, many have been abused in one form or another. Some were abandoned by their families, others had mothers who were drug dealers or prostitutes. Representing the most extreme cases, we have 2 groups of siblings whose parents were murdered right in front of their eyes. Although anyone who has visited Casa Shalom can tell you that the kids are happy and outgoing, they still suffer the effects of their difficult beginnings.
We have recently been blessed with the opportunity to help the children overcome deal with and overcome their tragic backgrounds - a Christian psychologist has offered to counsel as many children as need help, four times a month, for one-quarter of her normal cost. For $125 per month, all the Casa Shalom kids who need regular visits with a psychologist can get the help they need! As often is the case, however, the $125/month isn't in the budget. We are actively praying for someone to meet this need. If you or someone you know may be interested in helping Casa Shalom's kids get the counseling they need, please contact us at: TheHansonsinGuatemala@gmail.com
