Reach Out Orphanage Ministries (ROOM) has partnered with orphanages and day programs in Honduras since 2006. We have close personal relationships with each orphanage we support, and as their needs change, we adjust our programming to best deliver what each group of children need.
The poverty rate in Honduras is more than 66 percent. In rural area, one of every five Hondurans lives on only ~$1.90 per day. The pandemic and increasing gang violence in the country has exacerbated the problem.
In addition to providing food, shelter, clean water and basic necessities, ROOM seeks to ensure that the emotional, psychological and spiritual needs of the children are met. We sponsor educational initiatives, host Hope Camps, and help teach the Gospel so that each child can come to know the love of Jesus. We also provide staff mentorship to the leaders and caretakers at the orphanages we partner with.
We currently support six orphanages and children’s day programs in Honduras. We also provide emergency disaster relief to Honduras when needed.
