Last fall we received a Special Touch Ministries team that came down to the D.R. with a passion to encourage our LACC schools and the Dominican church in how to incorporate students and individuals with disabilities. During their time here we learned about a ministry that was connected to one our LACC schools ministering to the disabled community. They expressed a desire to offer education to those coming to the center and their enthusiasm was contagious. We let them know that if they hired a qualified teacher for classes we would investigate sponsorship for the students through LACC. Before 2012 ended, C.A.S.A. Gosen had hired a psychologist trained to work with mental disabilities and was providing classes on a regular basis. C.A.S.A. Gosen’s ministry is a humble work without doubt, but we’re encouraged by their dedication! If you’d like to know more about this ministry or are interested in sponsoring one of these very special LACC students, don’t hesitate to contact us.
