Hope Partners Costa Rica exists to rescue children and transform their lives through acts of compassion. We establish Centers of Hope in some of the most impoverished parts of the world to care for the most vulnerable among us.
The Hope Center in San Jose, Costa Rica, serves hundreds of students currently living in extreme poverty. We typically look for college students and recent graduates who are willing to commit 10 weeks of their time to serve the hurting world.
