History of the Methodist Children's Home
In 2006, through means which we can only attribute to God’s grace, we were able to purchase a small farm located in Patio de Agua, Coronado. The property has lovely rolling hills, several large flat areas, a small river, and access to public roads, water and utilities. Our vision for this farm is to build five homes, a multi-purpose building, an open air chapel, a soccer field, basketball court, and playground. The Home is a refuge for children who have been abandoned by their parents and need safe, loving, Christian environment to call Home. When completed we will be able to minister to 60 children.
The Children's Home Today
The Children´s Home is being built by mission teams from United Methodist Churches in the United States. These volunteers come to Costa Rica throughout the year and help local construction workers to build the homes. In March 2011, we completed the first home on the property (Casa Esperanza), and in April 2014, we opened the second home (Casa Fe). On March 31, 2022, we dedicated our new Ministry Center at the Children's Home. This beautiful new building serves as a school for the children who live at the Home as well as an outreach center to our community. Today, we have 26 children from 6 months to 18 year’s old living at the Home.
Bring a Mission Team
We would love to have you come and minister with us. You and your team will be able to stay in the dorms at the Wesley House for a nominal price, worship with a local Methodist Church, participate with local congregations in various outreach ministries, lay lots of concrete blocks, tie rebar, paint, all while enjoying the beautiful Costa Rican countryside and getting to spend time with and minister to the children living at the Home.

Financially Support the Home
The Children's Home relies on the support of generous donors with a heart for helping abandoned children. Our goal is to fully fund our annual operating budget with recurring financial gifts of all amounts. We have also created a Children's Home Endowment Fund that will provide perpetual support for the Home. You can give online to the annual operating fund or the endowment fund at:
