Charting impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

We are committed to helping families overcome poverty while strengthening the community around them.

By giving families the opportunity to earn a house, we ensure they are the change agents in their own lives and communities. They earn hours by serving their communities through initiatives chosen by community members themselves. Once they receive a new house, they are protected from extreme weather, violent crime, and preventable disease. And because they own their home, debt free, they have an appreciating asset that can set them on the path to greater stability and economic opportunity.

We have a staff of committed professionals in Mexico and work with locally-based partner organizations in El Salvador and Nicaragua who execute field operations, including overseeing the construction of houses that have been designed for cost-effectiveness, durability, and suitability to cultural and climatic needs. Community members are active participants in their own development, ensuring the sustainability of this work.

We are in the process of developing a rigorous system for measuring the outcomes of our work, including progress over time in several key indicators. We are committed to forming a culture of monitoring, evaluation, and learning that will inform how we grow and adapt our programs over time.

In our first ten years, we have built over 700 houses and families have served over 200,000 hours strengthening their communities. As we move forward, we anticipate building more houses each year while also measuring the impact of community development brought about through those hours of community service.
