Hogar de Niños El Ave María
The Home: Aware of the seriousness of the problem of child abuse, the order of the Trinitarian Fathers, the Trinitarian Laity and the community of the Ascension of the Lord of Rexville parish in Bayamón, took a step forward and created El Hogar del Niño El Ave María in Bayamón Gardens. It is a nonprofit institution duly registered with the Department of State and Finance.
This Home houses children who have suffered physical, mental and emotional abuse, who have been referred by the Department of the Family. They remain in the Home until the Department itself provides them with a permanent home. Currently, the Home houses 17 children whose ages range from newborns to three years of age.
Mission: To welcome children from newborns up to three years old, who have suffered abuse and neglect, offering them a comprehensive service and a transitional home, inculcating religious values, human warmth and motherly care.
Vision: To be recognized as the best institution in the care and integral development of children from newborns up to three years, who have been victims of abuse and neglect. We serve children from all parts of the island of Puerto Rico without exception of color, race, gender, belief or economic or social situation.
