NPH El Salvador: Dedicated to Family

Built in the style of our flagship home in Mexico, NPH El Salvador is a self-contained flourishing home located off the main highway between the busier Santa Ana city and smaller town of Texistepeque. Casa Sagrada Familia was established in 1999 as the sixth NPH home. Over 300 children and youths live at the main site while university students live in student homes in Santa Ana.

El Salvador still remains devastated after their 12-year civil war. The rate of violence and crime is very high and many children became orphans because of the war. The NPH property includes a preschool through secondary school, clinic, administrative offices, chapel, vocational workshops, farm and gardens, dining room and kitchen; houses for the boys, girls and the babies.

NPH El Salvador is led by Dora Lemus, along with over 125 dedicated staff.
