Foundational in its conception was the Biblical mandate to care for the fatherless and unprotected children. As in many underdeveloped nations, these defenseless children and adolescents teem in Peru. Overworked, underfunded, and misguided government agencies leave countless children victims to abandonment and abuse. Chiclayo's dense population and struggling economy are contributing factors to the prevalence of heart-wrenching stories among its children. In October of 2005 a non-profit corporation was chartered and registered in Chiclayo, and in November of 2006 the government licensing was obtained to operate a specialized childcare facility on the property the Lord had provided in Pueblo Nuevo. Devoid of any government funding, MSCH maintains local and national regulations, as well as a working relationship with the judicial system.
Family courts turn to MSCH as a placement option for children who need to be removed from perilous situations. In December 2007, MSCH received its first child and quickly all four spaces were filled. In 2009 a duplex was built in which each of two floors is a three-bedroom home designed and equipped to house foster parents and up to eight children. At present a family of four occupies the second-floor home and cares
for the boys. On the first floor the girls are cared for by different substitute moms who work in shifts.
