About the Journey

Through our partnership with La Casa de mi Padre, this global(x) team of Transit students and parents will head to Santo Tomás, El Salvador. Just north of the equator in Central America, it’s the most densely populated country in Central America, and sadly, where the cycle of broken families and extreme poverty is difficult to escape.

We’re excited to come alongside La Casa de mi Padre as they work to restore families by providing a loving family environment for some of the country’s most vulnerable children.  With three family homes on the property and a transition home in town, they’ve successfully created opportunities for children in need to experience love and acceptance in a traditional family environment.

We’re looking for a compassionate, high-energy team that’s ready to share the love of Christ with these children and families. Some of the projects your team may tackle include painting, landscaping, cleaning, organizing, and any other needs they may have. You’ll also have time to connect with the families that live on the property and hike through rural areas to visit and deliver meals to families in surrounding villages.

Get ready for a meaningful and purposeful experience and an opportunity to connect with, invest in, work alongside, and get to know these children and families!
