Casa Sana began in the heart of one woman moved by her sponsored children who live in small villages in Peru. In 2008 Madena Parsley went to Peru to meet her children. When she encountered the extreme poverty of Peru’s village children, she knew she had to do something more. In 2011, Madena and a team of incredible people established a program that empowers youth through community service, supports higher education, provides after school programs along with coaching, counseling and mentoring. That program is the foundation and core of Casa Sana.
