Casas por Cristo

Build a home with fellow volunteers in just one week, start to finish.

Build a secure house, complete with concrete foundation, metal roof, windows, and door.

Giving one week of your life to serve will give the gift of a lifetime to a family in need.

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 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.
