Are children's homes the forgotten facility? For many years, abused and abandoned children have lived in the worst places. People have come across this problem, but only turned away. We should learn and break away from the past. We should also take a look at the heartless ways these children have lived. It is time that we create an inviting, caring and playful atmosphere that will begin the healing process of the abandoned and abused children. This study is a children's home. The children's home will accommodate 70 children and young adults. There will be room for 20 children ages Omonths to 4 years old. The home will consist of sleeping areas, an administration building, an activity building, a storage building, and playgrounds. The children's home will be located in El Paso, Texas, a city at the extreme western edge of Texas. El Paso borders Mexico and New Mexico. You can have a great view of the Franklin Mountains any where in El Paso.
