One Small House Makes A Big Difference
Over the past ten years, OSH has built over 85 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.
Their Hard Work Deserves a New Home.
Pioquinto Carro Juarez is 42 years old and works 6 days a week as a furniture painter. He earns ~$125/week. His wife, Jacqueline Flores Guzman works the night shift at a factory earning about the same. They have two young children, Ximena, who is 10, and Marlon, who is 8. Currently, the home they live in is made of plywood they pieced together and the roof is a tarp that is held down with pallets. And with the rainy season well underway, we want to quickly get them into a warm, dry, safe, new home.
Mexico Build – February 2023
Las Cruces Community Center Sewing Clinic
Over the years, our work building homes in Tijuana, Mexico has allowed us to meet incredibly dedicated and inspiring people. An example of this is a group of women in Las Cruces that, on their own time, run a community center that provides a variety of resources for the neighborhood. One such opportunity is a sewing school for men and women to learn the skill. So moved by this work, our team has been supporting the projects with our own time, money, and resources. But, as is the case with this work, we’ve been further moved by the number of donors who have heard about this work and want to help. So, if you’re interested in supporting this project, donate below.
