After 18 months of construction, the admissions cottage is now almost finished. This structure is a special living unit designed for the needs of children who are brand new to San Martin de Porres. For the first few weeks of transition into the community, newly entering street children will stay here with special support, mentoring and supervision to help them integrate into the culture. They will then be assigned to a permanent villa. Before the inauguration of this structure, the original motor coaches of SMDP were used for this purpose. The buses, however, will be preserved as a playground as well as a memorial for the origins of the SMDP facilities starting in 2005.
