About Us

Hogar Sol Association was founded in 1990 with the name "Temporary Homeless Hostel Children". It was the result of the dream of a group of neighbors and friends from Desamparados, who aware of the urgent needs of the place, begin a path of service to our children. This sector is highly vulnerable, and demands immediate attention by the government and all its citizens. Our children suffer many social problems such as aggression, neglect and deprivation of rights due to them.

We are an NGO that works closely with the government of Costa Rica serving children at social risk and vulnerability status. We protect children in situations of neglect, abuse, sexual and physical assault.

Hogar Sol is an ecumenical, private and non-profit social welfare institution. Since its foundation, the Association had the firm conviction that children have rights in social risk, specific needs and require special protection from civil society.
