Dedicated to family
Built in the style of our flagship home in Mexico, Casa Sagrada Familia is a self-contained flourishing home located between Santa Ana and Texistepeque.
Established in 1999 as the 6th NPH home, over 300 children and youths live at the main site while 50 high school and university students live in student homes in Santa Ana.
El Salvador still remains devastated after their 12-year civil war. The rate of violence and crime is very high and many children became orphans because of the war. The NPH property includes a preschool through secondary school, clinic, administrative offices, chapel, vocational workshops, farm and gardens, dining room and kitchen; houses for the boys, girls and the babies.
At the University level, there are 27 young adults, studying different careers, such as psychology, medicine, law, accounting and communications. This year we have 2 young men and 1 young lady studying abroad in the United States and Mexico.
Inspired by the success of NPH Mexico’s folkloric dance group, NPH El Salvador dance and chorus group soon followed in their footsteps. They began performing locally for fundraising purposes and in the United States. This gives the children a sense of contributing to their family along with the joyfulness and therapy that music and dance can bring.
