Supporting and bringing awareness to the needs of Projeto Lar Feliz children's home in Jaguariuna, Brazil


Progress of Our Foundation

L​ar Feliz USA Foundation was created in 2006 to bring support and awareness to the needs of

the children of Project Happy Home (Projeto Lar Feliz) in Jaguariuna, Brazil.  Our foundation has grown in size and support with the focus of raising awareness, funds, and support.

The foundation is made up of several volunteers that are located in the Cleveland/Akron areas of Ohio. 

Jill van Opstal is originally from Manchester, Ohio (near Akron, Ohio). The men and women of her hometown and surrounding areas have come together to volunteer in support of her and her husband's mission goals. 

To give the children of Brazil the hope and happiness and love of Jesus Christ.​
