One Small House Makes A Big Difference

Over the past ten years, OSH has built  75 homes in rural Mexico, the Mississippi Delta, Haiti and Shreveport, Louisiana. Thanks to the tremendous support of our donors and volunteers, we’ve been able to help countless families. And because we’re run entirely by volunteers, we’re able to promise that your donations go directly towards helping these families. A special thanks to everyone who has helped in our simple mission.

They Lost a Loving Husband/Father to COVID-19. We Want to Help Ensure They Don’t Lose More.

This past year, Juana Baez Mendez lost her husband, Jose Carmen to COVID-19. This left her as the sole breadwinner for their two daughters, Karina and Maria. Now, struggling to pay the rent, they are at risk of losing their home. Prior to his death, Jose and Juana worked hard to purchase a small piece of land where they were going to live. Unfortunately, they were never able to afford a house and instead rented a dilapidated shack. Now without his additional income, Juana and her two children are at risk of losing everything. In addition, the two daughters are considering stopping school to help provide for the family. Our goal is to provide a glimmer of hope during what has been a terrible year for this family. Currently, we’re scheduled to build for them in August. But it’ll only be possible with the support of our amazing donors. If you or someone you know wants to help give, we couldn’t be more grateful.

A Fire Destroyed a Three Generation Home…And YOU Gave Them a New One!

On March 28, 2021, a fire destroyed the home that Magda Estrada had lived in for over 4o years. With no means to replace her house, she instantly became homeless. While generous neighbors have opened their doors and given her, her son, and her grandson a place to stay, this is only temporary. One Small House, along with dozens of generous donors, came together quickly to ensure this family didn’t stay houseless for long. In less than one week, our amazing donors put together enough money to replace this destroyed house. And just a few weeks after that, our crew of local builders turned it into a brand new home. The gratitude of Magda and her family cannot be overstated. Below is the key ceremony.

A Special Thanks to Those Who Have Already Given!
