About Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is a beautiful place where thousands of tourists visit each year. But beyond the walls of luxurious resorts, thousands of children live on the streets facing a future that seems hopeless.


How We Help

(un)adopted® partners with Niños de la Luz, who have a home in The Dominican Republic where 13 boys live who have faced the hardships of life on the street. At the boys home, they live in a family environment, are taught life and job skills, and are shown the love of Christ. (un)adopted works alongside Niños to equip those who care for and are influential in the lives of these children, and also to equip the children with job and life skills while sharing the Gospel of Christ with them. Most recently, we partnered with Niños de la Luz to build a second home on the property to house 12 – 15 more boys and reach them with the Good News of the Gospel.
