Our Story

Elizabeth Chinn first fell in love with the country of Belize after serving on multiple short-term mission trips as a teen in high school. She then went on to study and graduate from Christ For The Nations Institute in 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree in Children and Family Ministry.

Elizabeth moved to Belmopan, Belize, in 2014 serving at a local church, and it was there she saw the need for a transitional home within the community—a home that provides young ladies who are in or aging out of government care a safe place to grow, develop, and be empowered to make a difference in their communities. In November of 2017, the dream God placed in her heart came to fruition as Yasha Home opened the doors for their first placements.




Yasha home provides young ladies THE TOOLS to grow, develop, and be empowered through:

• Faith-based Principles

The women learn spiritual disciplines and foundational truths through Bible study, attending a local church, and relationships with mentors. Our approach is holistic focusing on three parts: mind, body, and soul.

• Practical Life Skills

In a family style setting, some of the many skills our young ladies learn are: conflict resolution, decision and problem solving, living on a budget, time-management skills, health and nutrition, etc.

• Furthered Education

Every child deserves the right to an education. Within the home, each are given the opportunity to finish schooling and hopefully pursue going to university or a trade school afterwards.
