Emanuel House provides specialized training for volunteers. This training ensures volunteers are prepared to serve neurodivergent children and their families.
Ministry partner: Emanuel House
Location: Quisqueya, Dominican Republic
Emanuel House (EH) ministry feeds children spiritually, physically, and emotionally. EH serves 150 children from 117 of the poorest families in Quisqueya. In addition to Bible study and education, children receive access to clean water, functioning bathrooms, and regular meals (breakfast, lunch, and snack)—which they may not have access to at home.
EH works with neurodiverse children—children with hearing loss, partial vision loss, physical disabilities, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism, and dyslexia— and provides training to the community to care well for this population. EH also holds Bible classes with children and their parents; many families become followers of Jesus.
