Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

2015 New Kitchen
The kitchen is complete as well as the complete remodel of the master bathroom and upstairs boys bathroom. The children's home is little by little taking shape due to the generosity of our faithful donors and volunteers
The remodel called for new cabinets, counter tops, tiling, sink, faucet, lighting, fan and dishwasher and new electrical wiring and plumbing. When completed, the new kitchen will provide ample storage and room to prepare and cook for this large family. The materials to be used will resolve the moisture and bug issues and are durable and easy to maintain.
2014 Home Expansion
In 2014, Don and Anna coordinated the addition of a girls dorm on the second floor of the Children's Home. Many volunteers donated their time and skills to complete the project which included a much needed new bathroom with showers.
The Home is continually in need of repair and maintenance to accommodate the growing needs of the family. There are plenty of projects and opportunities for those who would like to help.
We are extremely grateful for the numerous hours of dedicated volunteers who tirelessly plan, coordinate, work and donated to provide a blessing to the children and family.
We are dreaming and planning and talking with others about the possibilities for the Children's Home. Perhaps a second home for the older children. Maybe a small business where children could learn a trade and a skill for their future. Maybe some project for income to pay for their education and training. It is an exciting time in the life of Talita Cumi. We invite you to join us in making our dreams a reality. Stay tuned for announcements as we consider the next steps in our journey with Talita Cumi.
Talita Cumi’s goal is to continue to provide a safe place for children who are living in desperate conditions; a Home where children can live and be a part of a Christian family, where they will be loved and be given a chance for a bright future. We have been asked by several of our financial supporters as well as some of our volunteers, if we have plans for additional projects at Talita Cumi for the coming year. The answer is yes and we plan to start the projects after the first week in January 2016.
Our plan is to make changes to the Home to add a space for activities (homework, art, classes, events), correct the stairway going upstairs, increase the living space, build a large laundry room and create a room for an office. Talita Cumi needs volunteers and general funding to complete these projects.
