Heredia, Costa Rica | Group Mission Trips
In Heredia, located in northern San José, a community center is dedicated to helping citizens who have been forgotten and underserved grow physically, mentally, and spiritually. Backed by the local church, community and business leaders, this group of Christians is living out their faith by investing time identifying and equipping people who are either homeless, or have been prostituted; they also reach out to children and troubled youth.
They provide courses and programs that help people rise above their circumstances such as: computer skills, GED, leadership development, among many others. Many local people are currently involved with projects in their very own community. To date, the center has helped 200 families (1,500 people) in a variety of ways.
