Casa de Corazon
Casa de Corazon was established in 1991 under the directorship of Pastor Clive Dottin in his capacity as Youth Director. The original name of the Home was ‘Heart Home’ and was born out of the Heart to Heart Ministry. From its humble beginnings, the home now provides more comfortable accommodation due, in large measure, to the kindness of Phoenix Park Gas Processors Limited.
Its philosophy is that a child is created by God and has fundamental rights and freedoms that should be respected. Casa De Corazon also believes that a home is a place in which the environment facilitates the child’s total development.
This home was established to support children who have been abused, abandoned by parents or who may have faced some other social ill. It caters for the social, emotional, academic and spiritual needs of the children so that they may achieve their fullest potential, as well as, be reintegrated with their families and the wider community, in the shortest time possible.
“Casa”, as it is also called, is managed by a Board of Management, under the supervision of the Executive Committee of the Conference.
