A HOME

The COAR Children’s Village provides a home to abandoned, abused, and vulnerable children in El Salvador.

A SCHOOL

The COAR School, one of the best in El Salvador, is administered by the local Catholic parish with 1000 students, pre-K to 12th grade.

A COMMUNITY

The COAR campus meets the needs of the children and surrounding neighbors with a clinic and chapel providing both medical and spiritual services for the community.

A LEGACY

Founded in 1980, after the murder of St. Oscar Romero, it is the oldest extant organization named after St. Romero and proud to celebrate his legacy of love, service, and courage.
