Casas por Cristo

Founded 1993

ONE HOUSE Build a home with fellow volunteers in just one week, start to finish. ONE WEEK Build a secure house, complete with concrete foundation, metal roof, windows, and door. LIFE CHANGE Giving one week of your life to serve will give the gift of a lifetime to a family in need. WHY WE DO IT Casas por Cristo exists to open the door for local pastors and churches to share the love of Jesus Christ by serving. Our mission is to build and serve. WHO WE ARE We began building homes along the U.S. / México border in 1993, first in Ciudad Juárez. We have since expanded to Ciudad Acuña, México; San Raimundo, Guatemala; and Santiago, Dominican Republic. To date, we have provided over 5,000 families with homes. We are dedicated to meeting the physical need of better housing as a way of also meeting the spiritual need for Jesus Christ. Our Missionaries Casas por Cristo is primarily comprised of support-based missionaries. Each staff missionary is responsible for raising the majority of their salary. Most support comes in the form of donations from friends, family, churches, and team members. In addition to leading teams of volunteers through the building process, staff missionaries are responsible for administrative duties that allow the ministry to function. Our Pastors Board The Casas por Cristo Pastors Boards are comprised of nearly 150 pastors who live and work in México, Guatemala, and the Dominican Republic. These dedicated pastors meet monthly to worship together, encourage one another, and submit home applications for approval. Each pastor is personally responsible for visiting with the recipient family before and after they receive a home. This process is an opportunity to spread the Gospel and make disciples. Our Board of Trustees Our Board is comprised of individuals from all over the U.S. and Canada.

Mission/Vision Statement

WHAT WE DO
Our mission is to build and serve.

Build
We are builders. That’s who we are. We build homes for families that need to be reminded that Jesus loves them. We build relationships between volunteers, families, and pastors that would otherwise never have met. We strive to build the Kingdom of God by partnering with other local churches and ministries, leveraging their influence and history within the communities we serve. We strive to build opportunities for growth by creating structured experiences that cause our volunteers to be stretched beyond their comfort zones.

Serve
Through this building process, God allows us to interact with our teams, local families, pastors, churches, vendors, and fellow missionaries. We do not want to take any of these interactions for granted. We believe that these are unique opportunities presented to us by God to serve each other.
