Casa de Los Ángeles is our Tegucigalpa home for children with severe disabilities. Currently, we have 16 residents living with a variety of brain and muscular disorders and developmental delays. All of the children need 24-hour attention. Ten NPH high school students living in the home help with their care along with a dedicated staff. Nearly all of the Casa Ángeles children are unable to move or eat on their own. All meals are liquefied in a blender and then spoon fed to the children.

Our caregivers are trained to perform all of our own therapy, including horseback riding, sensory, occupational and a physical therapy called the “Glen Doman” method, an intense therapy routine that includes morning and afternoon sessions daily.
