The NPH Open Home Series
|Recordings..|..Donate..|..Mi Casa! – Sponsor a Home ..|..Next Episode|
The “NPH Open Home Series” is inspired by the open house theme; a popular event in the United States that is a friendly, casual time when people are invited to come into your home. Home evokes the image of Family – a core NPH principle. For those of you that know us well, you’re well-aware that NPH is a giant, international family. So, while the theme open house may be U.S. centric, the idea of opening one’s home to friends and family is global.
This live video series is an invitation for supporters, old and new, to come into the NPH world in more ways than one. Viewers will hear from personnel inside the NPH homes. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve had to cancel numerous trips and events. Still, amidst the global health crisis, families have found strength inside their homes. The NPH family is no different. We invite you to step inside our homes as well as our philosophy and values.

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.
