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
Our “grown-up children” are BEGINNING TO DISAPPEAR. They’re now at technical college, or in secondary education, or in their baccalaureate (pre-university) years… No longer are they those tiny primary school kids, constantly making demands on the three carers’ schedules at all hours of the day and night. They are minors but almost adults, and are beginning to spread their wings. They are becoming self-sufficient, in the best sense of the word, just as they should. In the photo we still see part of our oldest teenager.
Their daily schedules have changed, but they still spend some time with us. They don’t need us as much as they used to. But they still count on our support until the final goodbye. After that, their visits will be less frequent. But then every reunion will bring joy: a chance to remember them growing-up, with lots of good memories and funny anecdotes. Yes. ONE DAY THEY WILL DISAPPEAR. It’s part of the normal pattern of life.
