There are two fees that you will want to consider as you are planning your build. The first is the build fee, or rather, the cost of the home itself. The second is the individual ground fee. This is the fee that covers food, build related transportation, housing and administrative expenses on Roatan during the build dates. Below you will see we now offer 3 options related to the ground fee and hosting. Your airfare is handled by each individual team member or someone in your group that is assigned to coordinate and purchase flights. We can help with advice regarding flight carriers and routes. Regarding the build fee or cost of the home we offer fundraising pages where you can highlight your team, your build family and use to successfully raise funds for the home via email, personal messaging, and social media posting. We will set your funding page up when you have chosen your family and build dates.

It’s an incredible opportunity to see how God can and does provide when we commit ourselves to helping those in need. Share your teams story in person, via social media, direct messages and email.
