More than 11,000 people live and work in and near the Guatemala City Dump, and nearly 6,500 of them are children. Even by other Guatemalans, they are treated as little better than the garbage that shapes their existence, which in turn leads them to believe they are the refuse of the world.

Potter’s House Association is a Christian non-profit organization that exists to change the living situation for these thousands of people who live and work in the Guatemala City Dump – because they are human beings, beloved children of the one true God, worthy of respect and dignity.

To provide holistic opportunities for scavenger families by equipping them to be able to develop and transform their lives, families, and community.
