Reintegrate street children, teenagers and homeless adults into their families.
Provide support at juvenile detention centers to teenagers who have committed crimes, encouraging them to develop their learning skills and helping prepare them to return to society.
Twice a week, the Rescue House team goes to a square where street boys and girls usually stay to spend time with them and pray. We spend time playing UNO or soccer with the goal of building relationships and also inviting them to participate in open house activities.
THE OPEN HOUSE
The open house happens twice a week. The Rescue House team organizes a time of communion, deepening the relationship with adolescents. During those days, the focus of our team is to encourage them to choose the abundant life God has for them.
Rescue House works with adolescents in juvenile prision centers with an English workshop. The workshops follow a biannual curriculum, and the kids who complete the course with at least 80% proficiency have the opportunity to receive a certificate and a graduation held at Rescue House. During class, missionaries advise and encourage them individually to seek God's best for their lives.
Once a week Rescue House helps each person in the street situation to take the necessary documentation, such as Identity Card, Birth Certificate and CPF.
Rescue House has contact with Recuperation Houses in Belo Horizonte and the metropolitan region, we offer assistance to those who would like to leave the streets or to go to a rehabilitation center. For adults we try to refer them and take them to recovery homes. As for adolescents, we sought contact with their families and we verified the possibility of family reintegration.
Twice a year the Rescue House organizes a camp for the public that they have worked on approaches and open house, are days of devotions, ministrations, games. Time to go deeper and be intentional with the young people about the relationship with God.
The Rescue House provides assistance to children, teenagers and adults on the streets who need help, and gives references of places and people who can assist them. Thus, the Rescue House is a door that is always open to anyone who chooses to straighten out their lives, seeking to receive what God has, despite the difficulties.
