Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our organization is working with vulnerable communities in Puerto Rico, Peru, Ethiopia and Tijuana. In Puerto Rico we are focusing on restoring the homes of single mothers and elderly people who are still living under blue tarps. In Peru, we fully fund a children's home that is feeding and educating more than 40 kids every week (similar program in Ethiopia). We are also helping two migrant shelters in Tijuana, providing food, clean water, maternity items, clothing, and construction work for new rooms at the shelter. We also visited the Bahamas twice and provided hundreds of water filters post the Hurricane season that affected them.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

The Blue Roof Fund | Puerto Rico

Here in Puerto Rico, we keep hearing stories of loss, of business that have not recovered, of families still separated, and homes that are extremely vulnerable.

It's the Blue Roof Phenomenon.

Hundreds of houses are still using blue tarps as their ceiling, in danger of devastation at the arrival of any major storm.

This is why we are here now! We are aiming to restore 25 houses in the next 3 months. We are aiming to fill communities with hope. We are aiming to increase recovery and support.

And we need your help.

You see, God brought our whole operation to Puerto Rico. And we are partnering with 3 local non-profits to not only restore these 25 houses (home of single mothers and the elderly) but also to help recover sustainable farms and empower local churches to assist in the growing homelessness crisis.

So thank you for being generous to us!

Charting impact

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

We are planning to increase the teams we host every month in Puerto Rico, so we can complete 500 homes in 2020. We are also planning to expand our operations around the Caribbean so our teams can be ready to assist immediately after storms.

Another major program in the works is a trade school. We are in the final stages of having a trade school program which will allow a group of local students get trained in the field (carpentry, plumbing, electrical work).

In partnership with other non-profits, we are expanding our team of volunteers. We are also working directly with the local government to provide assistance in the reconstruction efforts here in Puerto Rico. The team that are visiting have already been booked and the planning committee has defined the budget to make it feasible.

Our organization has done an incredible job of expanding its platform. We reach thousands of people everyday through our social media channels, which allows us to connect to hundreds of other churches and organization who are seeing teams, money and resources to fulfill our mission.

We have assisted more than 120 families in Puerto Rico. We have delivered more than 500 water filters to the Bahamas. We have hosted more than 40 kids consistently in our children's home. And we will continue to expand our team in Puerto Rico and beyond.
