New Barbershop and Store project begins at Casa Hogar

After a year, or more, delay due to the COVID 19 pandemic, Casa Hogar is starting construction on the new Barbershop/Store building at El Porvenir! A few years ago ACC provided funding to send 3 of the young adults at El Porvenir to barber school. The three graduated and have been providing hair cuts for the 60 children at Casa Hogar since that time. They have another 3 young adults that have also been trained since then! This new barbershop will provide an opportunity for Casa Hogar to provide a needed service in the community and hopefully generate some income to help support Casa Hogar. It will also provide some hands on training in how to run a small business. Eliserio will be managing the barbershop with guidance from Mizraim. We are excited to see this new venture get started! Funding was provided by a couple at Arvada Covenant, Thanks!
