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…

We are committed to helping resource this ministry through key partnerships both in Costa Rica and the United States.

Costa Rica Feeding Program

Feeding Program – Donate $17 per Month
Feeding Program – One-Time Donation

Although Hope Partners believes we are called to do much more than just fill a belly, filling a belly is still very important and for many that we serve, it is a genuine need.

In Costa Rica, we feed approximately 225 to 250 children every weekday and the number continues to grow. For most of the children, it is the only balanced meal they receive all day.

For just $17 you can provide a month of meals for a hungry child in the slums of San José. If you are able to do more, that would be great, but please consider at least giving $17 per month to relieve hunger for a child and show the love of Christ in a very tangible way.

Our Ministry

Why

There are 100,000 families 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.

What

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.

How

The Hope Center currently feeds 225 to 250 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.
