Pat and Linda Manfredi the founders and parents of the Carpenter's House for Children say "Thank You" for visiting our site and we encourage you to get to know us better.

2018 had its joys, miracles, blessing and tears. Due to many circumstances we were not able to hold our spring and fall fundraisers, as we operate totally by the love offerings of caring people as yourself.

We are a State of Florida 501(c)(3) Non-Profit, so if you'd like to make a one time year end donation or start monthly pledges, click the Donate button below.

We look forward to 2019 with Jesus and joy in our hearts and wish you a blessed New Year.

Helping the Orphan children around the world in their adventure for a new life fulling future through medical intervention, rehabilitation, and education. 

The Carpenter’s House provides a safe refuge for children who come from orphanages in third-world countries, many of whom have experienced dismal poverty, near starvation or suffer from life-threatening medical conditions that cannot be adequately treated in their home country.

Adopting these children into their home — and their hearts — the Manfredis provide a foundation of values and responsibility, and a lifetime of love and support to the children of The Carpenter's House. Although raising up to 18 children under one roof presents challenges, the Manfredis consider themselves blessed to be able to help make a difference.

Supported solely by donations, The Carpenter's House operates on a very lean budget to provide food, shelter, clothes, medical care, school supplies and toys for the children in its care. Citing a "call from God" as their motivation, the Manfredis devoted their lives to providing hope to the hopeless, love to the forgotten and opportunity to the unfortunate. Although the couple has a seemingly unending supply of faith and determination to forge a good life for their children, they can't do it alone. They need your help.
