Meet Javier! He is one of the many children living at Casa Hogar Cañón Buena Vista, and this is a small piece of his story:

I’m 16 years old and I’ve been here for 3 years.
:: I go to school.
:: I’m in 10th grade.
:: And, I am very content living here.

I lived as if I was in a different world:
:: But here, my life changed!
:: I got sick of my life, because I was out in the streets too much.
:: I like to study, so when I got here, I went to school!

I am happy because God changed my life!
:: I went to church and I liked it.
:: We go every Wednesday and Sunday.

They treat us well here, and now I feel like a leader among the other kids!
