The Lima Children’s Home began in December 1992 in the La Molina district of the capital city to care for orphaned, abused and abandoned children. The Home officially moved in March of 2010 to the district of Pachacamac located on the outskirts of Lima.
The new Juniper Tree Children’s Home in Pachacamac is made up of individual family homes where a house mom helps provide for the physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs of the children modeling and encouraging them to grow in their relationship with God and determine the good plans He has for their lives.
Juniper Tree will eventually include six family homes each with its own kitchen, dining room, living room and outside play area. The older boys and their house parents moved from Lima into the first family unit in Pachacamac in March of 2009 and were joined by the other children from the Lima Home a year later. The new space will allow us to rescue and care for more children who need a safe and healthy place to live.
Thankful for the opportunities they've been given while living at the Juniper Tree Children's Home, a number of our graduates have expressed a strong desire to work with children at risk in the future.
