Did you know that:
- 45% of the 127 million people of Mexico live below the poverty line?
- Children without adequate shelter are three times more likely not to attend school; they also suffer more from depression, anxiety, and other mental health problems?
When a family is gifted a home it:
- Sets them ahead economically 8-10 years
- Produces healthy long-term thinking in the life of a family, helping to break the cycle of poverty in one generation.

Each trip will meet at the YWAM Headquarters in Chula Vista on Friday, usually early afternoon, and return to Headquarters on Sunday evening. A representative from Homes of Hope will meet you in Chula Vista to provide transportation across the border and to the base where you will be staying in Mexico.
Some builds will be in Tijauna; others will be in Ensenada. The sign ups below indicate where each build will be.
YWAM strongly encourages people to travel with a passport. If you don’t have a passport book or card, we strongly suggest you apply for one ASAP as passports can take up to 6 weeks to to process.
Please Note: On this trip, you will be on an active construction site, with inherent risks. For the safety of everyone involved, if your family travels with 2 or more children under the age of 12, we ask that one parent or guardian be chosen to supervise your children, working alongside them to help keep everyone safe. We also ask that if a family travels with any child aged 6 or under, one parent or guardian be chosen to supervise, working alongside them to help keep everyone safe. That may mean that one parent or guardian isn’t involved in the construction of the site, but instead paints, helps keep the construction site organized, connects with the family’s children or helps build relationships with the family.
Additionally, we have guidelines for minors traveling without either parent; if you want more information about that, please email: [email protected]
