Casa de Los Angeles is our home in Tegucigalpa for children with severe disabilities. There are over 12 residents living with a variety of brain and muscular disorders and developmental delays. All of the children need 24-hour attention and we’re fortunate to have a handful of NPH high school students that live in the home and help with their care. Nearly all of the Casa Angeles children are unable to move or eat on their own. All meals are liquefied in a blender and then spoon fed to the children. Casa de Los Angeles is also staffed with caregivers and volunteers who offer physical, occupational and speech therapy.
The children enjoy activities, such as training for the Special Olympics, attending camps, participating in horseback riding therapy, and going on planned excursions.
