On Saturday, October 12, 2013 St. Isidore Church will be hosting its 7th annual Father Frank’s Fiesta silent auction and dinner, to help raise funds to support Father Frank’s Kids.  We would like to request your support.

Father Frank’s Kids, Inc. is an organization dedicated to continuing the mission started by Father Frank Colacicco to help the orphaned and abandoned children of Central America. Today, Father Frank’s Kids provides support to the orphanages run by Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Peru, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Bolivia, Guatemala, and Mexico.

Children of all ages are embraced by this loving family, Nuestros Pequeños Hermamos, which is Spanish for Our Little Brothers and Sister.  Some have been abandoned; others have lost one or both parents and have no one to care for them.  Many have physical and emotional scars that eventually heal as they begin to trust their new family.

These homes provide shelter, food, clothing, healthcare, and education in a Christian family environment.  The children at the orphanages that we support are happy, loved, well-fed, and well-educated.  They are given shelter from the harsh surroundings and the malaise of the streets. They are given structure to help them persist with the support of parents.  The orphanages house children from infancy through the high school age.

Each home strives to be self-sustained.  In Honduras, for example, the orphanage produces 1,500 fresh eggs and 300 liters of milk each day, meeting the needs of all who live there.  The homes each have living spaces, a kitchen, and a dining hall.  There are chapels for worship, clinics, and primary and secondary schools.  There are workshops where children can learn trades, such as carpentry and welding.
