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.
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.
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.
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.
