Mission/Vision Statement

Building Homes, Changing Lives

Alternative Missions had been doing ministry in Mexico and Honduras since the early 90’s. Dwellings director, Tom Hackett, saw the opportunity to connect people who shared in the desire to serve the poor with those who were in need of housing. Our first Dwellings home was built in Cofradia, Mexico in late 2009, followed by a build in Roatan, Honduras in early 2010. Since that time, Dwellings has partnered with hundreds of volunteers to construct homes in 4 countries.

Today, Dwellings continues to operate in two locations in Mexico and in Roatan, Honduras. Our desire is to partner with churches, schools, businesses, and individuals to impact as many families as possible.
