The Emmanuel Children's Residence began to exist in 1967 as an initiative approved by a group of evangelical Christian women from Catalonia and Spain, and which became a reality in January 1969. Since then and up to the present, many people have worked in this service of welcoming the that many children have benefited.
The main reason of the Family Home is to favor the integral development of the children we serve, indirectly helping their families to re-establish adverse situations in order that each child can return to their home.
Here in Catalonia we have just celebrated Saint George’s Day, the “rose and book day”, which falls near the end of April. Books are a ubiquitous item here in our Home, the “Resi”, throughout the year and for all ages. For the little ones, with lots of pictures. For the older children, with lots of text. Some are for leisure and enjoyment. Others are study books and work books. And, yes, they still survive, even in the era of mobiles, tablets and laptops. There are striking sayings about books remembered here in Spain, such as “a book helps you be a winner” (“un libro ayuda a triunfar”) or Unamuno’s wonderful statement that “Fascism is cured by reading and racism by travelling”. And our favourite is The Book, the all-time bestseller and most read book. In fact, it's a whole library of books. It truly is the Book of Books.
