NPH’s fifth home for at-risk children was established in rented facilities on November 11, 1996. The family moved to their new home, named Casa San Andres, which is situated 4,900 feet above sea level in Guatemala’s highlands, in August 2003. It is located in Parramos, 16 miles from Antigua and an hour northwest of Guatemala City, the capital. More than 200 children are fully supported. The site features: 25 acres of land; school (grades K-9); vocational workshops; computer room; clinic; chapel; sports fields/courts; solar water heaters in 90% of home, and power in two houses; farm and greenhouse; fully independent water system, including a purification mechanism, a tower, a well, and a sewage treatment plant.
