CISNA is an acronym for the center's Spanish name, which is "Complejo de Integración Social para la Niñez y la Adolescencia" (Complex for the Social Integration of Children & Teenagers). CISNA is home for approximately 20-35 boys ages 11-18. These boys are admitted as a result of abuse, abandonment, or for their personal protection as ordered by the court. Many of these boys are found living on the streets; most ran away from home or were kicked out by their parents. Others are brought to CISNA because of family abuse or mistreatment.
Orphan Helpers has 1 staff member in this center who works as a teacher. The teacher offers counseling and guidance to the children and teaches crafts, Bible class, and discipleship classes every day to the children. We also operate a Spanish library in the center.
