Metro Ministries Costa Rica,
serves over 150 children and 30 teenagers every week.
Metro has worked to rescue suffering and hurting children, offering them a message of love and hope that encourages them to keep strong and stay in school, away from gangs, drugs, and other destructive or criminal behaviors so common in inner-city environments. Metro meets both spiritual and physical needs through long-term, one-on-one relationships, mentorship, child sponsorship, and visitation.
What we do:
We provide both physical and spiritual support to families in extreme poverty. Our project focuses on children and young people who are disadvantaged, abused, and mistreated by their homes. We are currently supporting more than 150 children per week and youth with our programs.
We offer various activities for children such as Dramas, puppet shows, Bible stories, Bible lessons, games, worship songs with movement, Art clubs, vacation Bible schools, youth camps, home visitations, child sponsorship, community work with missionary teams. We meet each child, teenager, and family where they are and personally invest in their lives. we believe that relationships and meeting physical needs are important, but only the redemptive power of Jesus can truly change lives. For children living in hopeless situations, the love of Jesus brings hope, joy, peace, and provides a foundation that cannot be shaken.
Our kid's programs and youth programs are the great opportunities of our ministry, where the Metro youth and children have the chance to meet and receive the love of Jesus for the very first time.
