jeny's Story

World Orphans Guatemala Social Worker Jeniffer Barrios joined the World Orphans team in 2014. Jeny’s background in psychology and her prior work as an educator made her an idea candidate for this role.

In this position, Jeny trains the Home Based Care committees for each of the Guatemalan churches that partner with World Orphans, empowering them to detect high-risk families and equipping them to provide comprehensive care to vulnerable families, orphans, and widows. As part of this work, Jeny also provides counseling to children and families being served. She counts it a privilege to work hand-in-hand with the local church to show the love of Christ to Guatemalan communities.

When Jeny is not training committee members or counseling local families, you may find her reading one of her favorite books or enjoying a movie.
