JLM Christian Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Marie Claire (MC) Beauvil.  JLM Panama then created The House of Hope. Located in Penonomé (45 minutes from the entrance to Coronado), JLM House of Hope is Panama’s only empowerment house for at-risk girls looking to create a better future. Through education, counseling, and positive role modeling, young girls are empowered to recognize their full potential. The girls accepted into JLM House of Hope come from disadvantaged homes…whether from
extreme poverty, abusive situations, or far distances where higher education is not available to them.  The girls must follow guidelines set up by MC that include attending university classes, no pregnancies, and learning life skills to maintain a harmonious household. JLM House of Hope teaches personal responsibility and builds self-esteem that each girl will carry with them for a lifetime.

A few ways to contribute to JLM House of Hope are as a volunteer, tutoring, organizing or assisting with fundraisers, making repairs to the house, or just spreading the word along with giving monetary donations, food, and personal hygiene items.  Please email: to get involved in this cause for these young women. (There is now a JLM House of Hope for men, also.)
