What makes us different?

We’re on a journey to house 1M people by 2030.

We’ll do whatever it takes, and we know you will too. Join us.

Your generosity builds more than shelter.

Health & Sanitation

Living without a safe roof and clean floors leads to runoff water flowing through the floors and often leads to the spread of dangerous illnesses to infants and others. When we build, each home and community is designed to provide these basic needs which means parents no longer have to worry about even simple things, like their children playing on the floors of their home.

Safety

Having a door and windows with locks means that children and parents can sleep at night knowing they’re safe from what’s outside. In the communities we build, the new homes typically replace houses made from scrap metals or found resources that create unstable, temporary dwellings. Homes built by your donations provide personal security to safeguard belongings and valuables and prevent external violence. Read more

Education

For children growing up in poverty, unsafe home conditions make it very difficult to study and get proper sleep to focus in school. Every donation to homebuilding helps provide children with a proper place to focus and learn, as well as a cozy space to recharge at night. This means a brighter future for children in the communities we build. Read more

Income

A safe home gives parents the chance pursue opportunities to earn more money and start businesses. Instead of wondering where rent will come from or spending time trying to build their own homes, families can focus on thriving. We have seen many families begin businesses from their homes which provide not only more income for their family to meet everyday needs, but also inspires the next generation. Read more

Community

Our community and home layouts are designed with the input of the families who will reside there. This way we know that each family receives the gift of a home, while the community as a whole also has the foundation to grow stronger and thrive. Read more

We lean on the smartest people we know.
