Rescuing Children and Transforming Their Lives


Costa Rica Pandemic Response

Hope Center Costa Rica

A church was planted 25 years ago in Pavas, Costa Rica’s most impoverished community. The vision of the church was to communicate God’s truth while helping to alleviate the all-too-evident needs of the community. With very little in resources, the church made an impact but was still struggling. In 2012, Hope Partners International and Costa Rica Openhouse Church adopted this initiative and built on the foundation that had been laid. A new Hope Center was born with a transformational strategy designed to break the poverty cycle in Pavas. We do this by…

Our Ministry


There are 60,000 people in Pavas who live in extreme poverty. While we cannot help all of them, we can minister to many, and we’re committed to bringing holistic transformational strategies to this community.


Our work is focused primarily with single mothers and at-risk children. Our programs provide food, education, spiritual formation, dental care, psychological guidance and leadership development.


The Hope Center currently feeds about 450 children daily, Monday through Friday. For more than half of them, this meal represents the only balanced nutrition that they receive that day. In addition to the feeding program, we have an academic program that provides mentors, academic tutoring, clubs, computer skill development, robotics, ballet, and art. Mothers play a key role in this program. They are required to not only make sure their children attend their weekly club and tutoring sessions but also to attend monthly meetings that focus on the psychological and spiritual development of their Families.

A final component of the Hope Center is to help resource the church. The Hope Center Church offers programs on Tuesday evenings for children and adults as well as Sunday church services that give the community around the center a place to seek comfort, encouragement and hope.
