Our Serving at-Risk Families (SARF) ministry in Linda Vista and Villa Neuva, Guatemala began in 2013. SARF provides extremely poor families with schooling, job training, healthcare access, Bible education and Bible community clubs, home repairs, nutritional training, and emotional counseling needed to help get them to a place of self-sufficiency.
Since less than 20% of Guatemalans graduate from high school, SARF gives the children in the SARF ministry families an opportunity to go to school. We are working with this young, new generation to educate and break the poverty cycle of each family.
The ministry currently has 5 in-country missionaries from York County, PA that support all facets of the program. Servants sends 4-6 mission teams per year to build relationships with our families, local churches, community members and each other. Our teams work on family and community repair projects.
