The children represent the many different cultural backgrounds found in Belize. The children come to the Center for many reasons. Most of the children at the center have been abused, neglected, or abandoned. These children need a loving and caring environment in which to grow and develop.
A Board of Governors, made up of caring individuals from the community, is appointed by the Ministry of Human Development, Women and Civil Society to assist with the smooth running of the Center. The Board consists of ten members and has representation from the Ministry in the form of the Director of the Human Services Department, the Coordinator of the Family Services Division and the Foster Mother of the Center. The other members represent the public, private, and business community.
The Board of Governors identifies and develops projects to enhance the quality of service offered to the children at the center. The board is authorized and actively solicits funds for the financing of these projects.
The board is currently looking at enhancing the counseling and guidance offered to the center by providing a full time counselor resident at the Center to provide ongoing counseling and support to the children at the Center.
