The social-economic condition of many women living in the San Quintin Valley is very poor and despairing at times. The Mission provides a Day Care for approximately thirty children whose mothers must work (from 5:00am to 5:00pm in the camps) and cannot pay for someone to take care of their children. Day Care can be very cold words but at the Mission they exemplify warm and caring hands and hearts watching over children who would otherwise daily be left in loneliness and lack while mothers must work.
When the sun is beginning to come up, teachers drive vans over very rough roads to pick up the children. At each stop, a pair of little eyes await to be rescued from a hostile world and taken into an earthly paradise. The 30 plus children are bathed every morning and given clean uniforms to wear while their clothes are washed, hot food on cold days, pure water to drink, and a clean environment. They are treated with dignity and given lots of love.
They receive preschool training with biblical principles with the objective that they will receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, and obtain hope and a vision for their lives. All of this care comes to them free of charge, and is provided by the generous donations to FFHM. The love and gratitude returned to us by the children brings a compensation that money can never buy.
