The purpose of the Solace Family Home is to be a place of refuge for children in need. A team of volunteers from Solace Church visited Cote d’Ivoire and toured other orphanages in the area. After this trip they scrapped their plans of a large, institutional building and designed a home that would be smaller, more relational, and feel like “home.”
The initial plan is to construct a building that will serve as the residence for the Solace Missionaries, an office, and infirmary. There will also be two identical buildings that will house up to twelve children and one “mama.” In the future, there will be five identical homes, providing a safe place for up to sixty children.
