When my father and mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up. Psalms 27:10
How sweet it is to know that our Heavenly Father will never leave us, nor forsake us.
The Noah's Ark Children's Home is committed to being a voice for those who are not old enough to defend themselves, to be the hands for those who cannot provide, to be an example to those who are looking up to others, and to be a savior to those who are in need, hurting, confused, depressed, and homeless. These things will be done so every child can meet the TRUE SAVIOR of the world, Jesus Christ, and through these children the Kingdom of God may be enlarged.
Goals of Noah's Ark Children's Home
The Noah's Ark Children's Home was established to meet the needs of children in difficult situations, and lead them to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. We will maintain a Christ-centered family setting where children can develop emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. We will provide children with increased capacity for meaningful relationships with peers, family, and adults. We will strive to build and maintain partnerships with the local and international organizations that provide collaborations to enhance the quality of service for the children and staff of Noah's Ark Children's Home. We will establish and maintain an array of quality assessment, treatment, counseling, and social services to meet the need of each child, regardless of age or behavior.
Why establish a children's home?
Jamaica is a beautiful country, with an amazing history. It is a vacation destination for thousands of people from every corner of the globe. Behind the beauty portrayed by the resorts, there is a darker side to the true Jamaica. It is a very poverty stricken country, which in turn leads to many children with no place to call home.
With crippling poverty rampant over the island, many children are left to the street life of gangs, prostitution, or simply begging for their next meal. There is not a strong sense of a family unit, where both mother and father are present in the rearing and raising of a child. Most children never know their father. The mother, if she is present, has to take on both roles, and do what is necessary to provide for her family.
We at Noah's Ark Children's Home want to have a part in changing the next generation. We want to show the children true love and compassion. We want to show them that there is a better way than street life. We want to be a refuge for them, where they can feel safe no matter what the circumstances.
God has called us into this ministry. He has provided and prepared the way thus far. As we continue to seek His will, we put our total faith in Him, knowing that He will raise this organization up for His glory!
