Holt's House of Hope

The Holt Rowland Foundation, along with all of our partners, are thrilled to announce we are currently in construction of Holt’s House of Hope. Holt’s House of Hope is a shelter for boys on the streets in Boca Chica, Dominican Republic. At Holt’s House, these boys are provided with basic needs (food, clothing, toiletries), education (learn a trade or skill), activities (art, music, sports), and most importantly discipleship (Biblical guidance). The facility will include an open air pavilion, a fully equipped kitchen to serve daily lunches, a store where the boys can earn points to spend toward items they need or want, and 3 classrooms similar to the renderings in these photos.

We are currently raising the funds required to furnish the facility.

Clean Water

Through some local partnerships and connections, we have been presented with the opportunity to build a water treatment facility in Boca Chica, where we can sell clean water to the local community at a discounted price.  Currently, the only access to clean water for the local community is through purchasing 5 gallon jugs at local colmados for between $1.25 and $1.50 normally, but we can provide as good or better quality water for about 1/3 of the price.  This opportunity will be a game changer for our ministry and for engaging with the local community with the opportunity to share the gospel.  We have seen similar facilities prove to be transformational among local churches and communities.  To make this a reality, we need your help!

Local Missionaries

Our missionaries are the heartbeat of our ministry. They engage with the boys on a daily basis, provide meals for them, work with local officials for school paperwork documentation, and more. Our staff also meets together weekly for discipleship and administrative meetings as well as one-on-one Bible study time. As our ministry grows, we will have the opportunity to bring on more local staff to serve in various roles.
