Matching Grant for Transition House & Staff
Eagles Nest in Sololá, Guatemala was originally planned as temporary housing for children birth to 6 years old, until they could be placed in families. After the almost complete shutdown of adoptions due to widespread corruption, they became more of a transition home with a permanent population. Children are placed at Eagles Nest through the court system.
Now that the home serves older children, a transition program was needed to help children begin the process of re-entering the outside world. So we provided matching funds to build a transition house and the first year of staff salaries. Within two months they had raised the necessary resources.
