Para que nadie tenga que quedarse en el frio / So that none need to stay out in the cold
Bienvenido - Welcome
"I often walk
through the streets of Antigua, and my heart breaks to see the dozens of small
and large bodies curled into the doorways and arches.
A few are drugged.
Others are drunk. By far, most are there simply because they are poor and have
no where else to go. All of them are people... all of them are God-like in
Madre" Homeless Shelter of Antigua, Guatemala, was founded to effectively
and efficiently remove these children and homeless adults from their suffering;
to give them a safe place to stay, a hot meal to eat, a doctor to heal their
wounds, and volunteers to say that they care."
Co-Founder & Executive Director
The "Santa Madre" Homeless Shelter of
Antigua, Guatemala is a separate, apolitical, ecumenical charitable effort,
made up of many different concerned people and charities, of which the
Municipality of Antigua and La Asociación Nuestros
Ahijados are just two of the concerns volunteering
their time, skills, resources, and services.
