Meet the Foundation
The Association of the Beatitudes
We are a work of love that is born in the heart of God and that was founded by Father Omar Sánchez Portillo. The ADLB operates in the Tablada de Lurín in the Villa María del Triunfo district of Lima and serves as a welcoming space for those who have nothing, who need most, those who feel abandoned and alone.
It is a home where we welcome the “poorest of the poor” - as Mother Teresa of Calcutta taught us - permanently or temporarily, giving them the quality of life and all the affection and love of Jesus. We currently have 170 children, adolescents, youth, adults, and older adults declared abandoned or in the process of guardianship investigation with physical, psychiatric and/or special educational needs.
Every donation that is made and Bag sold goes to supporting our mission of helping those in need. By elevating those in our community to a better life we grow in strength and love for all.
