The Tree of Life Children’s Village Homes provide permanent homes for orphaned children. There will be 50 homes at the Tree of Life Children’s Village with each home caring for 12 orphans with two Godly house moms serving as the “parents”. Each home has three bedrooms for the children with two sets of bunk beds each, a master bedroom for the moms, a kitchen, a family room, a dining room, and a front porch.
The 50 homes are arranged in “neighborhood clusters” with five homes in each cluster. They share a common courtyard with play equipment and plenty of space for “neighborhood” events with other “families” from other homes. The Tree of Life is a haven of hope, love, and safety for these children who are the very neediest of all.
The first group of homes opened in the summer of 2009 to 60 children. It is amazing to read the stories of these orphaned children who had so little, yet God provided them a new, safe home where they can flourish.
The very first house that opened at the Tree of Life was Lahema’s House. The money for each one of the houses was provided by individuals who wanted to build a house that would rescue orphaned children. They got together with friends and raised the money to build a house.
