About God Bless The Children

God Bless the Children is located in Guatemala City and is home to children aged 0-6.  The founder of the home is  Cinthya Vallejo, a Christian Guatemalan attorney who has been placing neglected and abandoned children in foster homes since  2004.  As foster care is no longer authorized by the government, the home was founded in 2010. Children are placed in the home by the Juvenile Courts from various regions of the country and come from abuse, neglect, and abandonment. At God Bless the Children, they meet the physical, mental, educational and spiritual needs of each child, by giving them a family model where they receive love and Christian principles.
