Build a home for a family in need

This June I will be traveling with a group of volunteers to Nosara, Costa Rica to help build a home for a family in need.  We are teaming up with Mercy Home Ministries and Casa Vida, the local church who has made it their vision to serve impoverished families.  So far, they have dedicated their time and efforts to building over 150 homes in Costa Rica, 54 being in the Nosara Region.

While there, we will build one complete home from start to finish.  We will also install footing and work to create the foundation for two additional homes in the area.

21% of Costa Rican's are currently impoverished and living in poor, unsafe conditions.  The family that we are building for is one of the many that have been wait listed for months.  These families come from villages where homes are built from garbage and have no flooring or amenities.

We are honored and excited to be able to spread the love.  While we have the manpower to build this home, we still need to raise the funds.  Any support you're able to provide towards this trip would mean so much to me!  Your contribution will help change the lives of people who could really use our assistance and compassion.  If we exceed our goal, any additional funds will go towards the church so they are able to continue their mission.

Thank you for taking the time to read about this project!  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.  Much love to you all!
