Dominican Republic - House Build

   

Opportunity Overview

Casas por Cristo relies on the labor and resources of full-time staff missionaries, a board of over 100 pastors and community leaders from Mexico, Guatemala and Dominican Republic, and nearly 7,000 annual volunteers from across North America. Through these cross-cultural partnerships, volunteer teams are presented with an amazing opportunity to build a home for a family in need.

Come join us and play your part in showing Gods love and faithfulness to a family in need. During this one-week experience you will transform an otherwise empty lot into a safe and secure home – complete with cement foundation, electricity, windows and doors. As a result of this experience, each family receives a tangible symbol of the faithfulness and unconditional love of Jesus Christ. As a volunteer, you will gain perspective on the extreme poverty that exists in our world. You will also be blessed by this experience and see how you have changed the world for this family. As a result, these families better understand God’s plan for their lives and His deep desire to take care of their needs.
