Build a house for a family in need in
one weekend with Casas de Luz!
Casas de Luz is a home building organization in Tijuana. This organization helps people, including families that have been deported, in Tijuana who need homes. This is a way to make a difference in a family's life in one weekend and it doesn't cost a lot of money to participate.
CDL brings youth and adults from the US and Mexico together to build. Expertise and building materials from both sides of the border are used. Donations from the U.S. provide doors, windows, cabinets, furniture, appliances, and more in order to furnish the homes.
Their vision is to empower individuals and families on both sides of the border to recognize their potential and create change in this world.
The Casas de Luz website gives thorough information about the weekend schedule and what to expect. They welcome anyone who is interested in volunteering!
