Watch this video! A short introduction to Mama Tara

Our Mission.

The Mama Tara Family.

Our main focus is to provide a loving Christ-centered home and family for orphaned and at-risk children on the Miskito Coast.

Despite our name, we are not an orphanage in the traditional sense. Rather, we strive to provide a family atmosphere focusing on the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of each individual child.

Mama Tara Family Assist Program.

Keeping Families Together.

This program offers support for at-risk families by giving children (ages birth through sixth grade) two meals a day, uniforms, school supplies, tutoring, and homework help.

We work with parents and children to create and accomplish goals that support the family structure and promote Christian values.

Mercy & Grace

Child Development Center.

Estabilished in 2013, Mercy & Grace delivers preschool and kindergarden classes. Through hands-on and learn through play activities we foster age appropriate development, creativity, and a love for Jesus.

We serve children from our home, the family assist program, other ministries, and at-risk children in the neighborhood who would otherwise not have access to early education.
