Casas por Cristo

We began building homes along the U.S. / Mxico border in 1993, first in Ciudad Jurez. We have since expanded to Ciudad Acua, Mxico; San Raymundo, Guatemala; Santiago, Dominican Republic; and Chinandega, Nicaragua. 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.

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.

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.
