Casa Hogar Bethel began when Josefina Valencia saw a need within her city for children who didn’t have parents. In the very beginning, she started taking in children from her neighborhood and that was when she felt called to a lifetime of ministry working with children in need. Throughout the years, the only thing that has kept the children fed, clothed, and warm is faith. There were many times when there would be nothing in the pantry to eat and panic would start to arise in the adult workers, but Josefina would just calmly say “God will provide, these are his kids.” Sure enough, every time, some one would come with groceries right before it was time for the children to eat.
