  • Service Team Home Build

Build a home for a family in need with your service team, or fundraise locally to cover the costs.

Donate Any Amount to Provide a Home for a Family in Need

Home Building facts and figures:

  • The homes cost $2,500 to build and take 3 days to construct.
  • These homes will last for at least 40 years.
  • When families apply to ask for a new home, our social workers assess their situation to decide if they are eligible to receive a house.
  • Many applicants are abandoned or widowed mothers who would otherwise never be able to raise enough money for a house.  They are often working women who spend all their income on food and survival.
  •  Our waiting list for approved families lasts about 2 years.

No construction skills or foreign language necessary! Service Teams are provided a team leader to help construct simple, yet dignifying homes.

The homes our volunteers build make an immense impact on the lives of the families they are gifted to. 40+ years of gratitude will remain after the team leaves.  Photo credit: David Dethlefs/Taft 2016
