Livecast Notes

Who we are…

Dwellings is a charity that builds homes for families in need and changes the lives of everyone that is involved in the process. 

Micah 6:8 

He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?

Dwellings Operating Locations

  • Cofradia, Nayarit

  • Puerto Peñasco, Sonora

  • Roatan, Honduras 

Our goal is for Dwellings to be known for: 

  • Being driven by compassion and responding to the needs of others.

  • Building homes that are a fusion of simplicity and quality.

  • Builds that involve hard work and are well organized.

  • Builds that result in a great experience for everyone involved.

The success of Dwellings meeting the needs of families living in extreme poverty depends on the willingness of people like yourself to get involved.

The Impact of a Home

More than a home

When a family receives the gift of a home it completely transforms the trajectory of their lives. The home itself is just the first step in providing a prosperous future for a family.

Providing a home helps keep families together

Having inadequate shelter results in stress that can lead to separation of families as individuals are forced to look for work in other cities. Inadequate shelter can also cause parents to decide they cannot care for their children which could lead to institutionalization of the children, children being sent to live with friends or family members creating separation of parents and children, or outright abandonment. A home keeps a family together, and allows a family to care for itself.
