About Mattaw

Mattaw Ministries is a 501 (c)(3) based out of San Angelo, TX.  We became an official 501 (c)(3) in January 2010.

In March 2007 we bought 7 acres of land for Mattaw Children's Village.

In September of 2008 we opened the first home and welcomed our first 12 beautiful children home.

Our mission is to take in the most desperate orphaned, abandoned or destitute children within our area.  We bring children into a new home with a mom and dad, brothers and sisters.  Each home has Kenyan house parents that are married Christians.  It has a room for 6 boys and room for 6 girls.  Our first phase is 6 of these homes.  We currently have 4 of the 6 opened and 5 of the 6 built.  The reason it is called a children's village is because we want to provide for our children holistically.  There is a school on site where we provide the best schooling we can and are always looking for ways to improve.  We have Kenyan teachers hired from around the area we live in.  This year we are introducing a new curriculum called Accelerated Christian Educaiton.  There is now a base for this material located in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya.  We also have a church recently opened.  Its purpose is to have fellowship Sunday mornings with the children and staff living at Mattaw.  During the week it will be a place of ministry opportunities for the surrounding village.  We want to be a place to equip the body of Christ through various ministries whether its teaching the elderly how to read their bible, providing a skill for widows and single moms, having conferences to teach biblical foundations or a weekly backyard bible club for the surrounding children in the villages.  These are all dreams in the making.  Mattaw is the hebrew word "planting" found in Isaiah 61:3 and that is the core of our mission:  "that they would be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord, for the display of his splendor".

We are also in the beginning stages of opening up Mattaw Sprouts Baby Home.  This will be on a different plot of land.  It will be a home for ages birth to 2 year olds.  When the child is 2 or stable enough, they will then transition into a Mattaw home where they will have a permanent family.
