Strengthening Families in Peru and India

The Father Peyton Family Institutes, located in Peru and India, provide wrap-around services that address root causes of various issues to transform families and improve the lives of people in the neediest communities. The Institutes continually monitor and evaluate their programming and community needs to ensure they are serving families in the most effective way.

Why the Family Institutes Matter            

The Father Peyton Family Institutes serve two large communities, experiencing extreme poverty in Lima, Peru and Bangalore, India. These communities are plagued by drug abuse, domestic violence, weak marriages, and troubled families. These families need our support which is why the Family Institutes are as important as ever.

The Family Institutes conduct research to identify the needs of local families and in response to these needs, deliver tailored services to families that maximize the impact of enhancing unity in the home.


The Family Institutes' Impact  

At the Family Institutes, we are planting seeds of hope, and our programs and services are helping families whose lives are difficult, but who sincerely want and deserve a better future for themselves and for their families. We are improving the lives of over 100,000 people annually through the following services:

  • Marriage and engagement enrichment programs
  • Youth Art and Faith program, and music programs
  • Substance abuse and domestic violence counseling
  • Nutrition and health programs
  • Youth sports and chess clubs

Looking Ahead

To address the growing needs of families in India, we have begun the construction of a much larger Family Institute that will allow us to dramatically expand the services we provide and the number of families we reach. The new Institute building will include a chapel, conference center, meeting rooms, administrative offices, and residential housing that will give families a place to stay while they are partaking in retreats and other mission activities.
