HOME 4,000

This summer we're having a celebration and you're all invited!! On May 14th we are building Home 4,000!

We are celebrating this milestone by partnering with our Mexican and American staff and our pastors committee in Juárez to build our 4,000th home for the Perez family. At the end of the week we will give them keys to the home that they have been waiting for, for four years! We'll commemorate it all with a celebration at a local church in Juárez!

So how can you be involved?? 
The week of May 14th we are going to be blogging, tweeting and facebooking all of the festivities.  We want you to be part of this and share what God is doing with your friends and family.

However, that's just the beginning.

Sandra Gutierrez, Alfredo Perez and their six kids have been waiting for a home since April 2008!  Our dream is to build a three room home for this family of eight.  We are asking you to help us raise the funds necessary to make this dream come true.  We want this home to be entirely funded and built by those that believe in Casas por Cristo - our staff, pastors, supporters and volunteers.

This home is being built because you all have supported this ministry and the work we have done over the years.  We want Home 4,000 to be a catalyst for even more by using this to kick off an entire summer of building!

We need to raise $7,000 to build Home 4,000 for the Perez family, but we also want to bless as many other families as we can with homes this summer. We will be training a new group of interns during the building of Home 4,000.  Our goal is to raise enough money fueled by Home 4,000 for our interns to build the rest of the summer.

There are families that have been waiting for over four years for homes. This summer we want to answer their prayers. We would LOVE to bless 10 new families with homes over the summer months.

Will you become part of this dream with us?!
Will you join us, spread the word and invite your friends and family to help us build more homes?!

We're calling this campaign Home 4,000 and you can give through our website or through our campaign page on Facebook!

For every $25 given we will send you our Home 4,000 t-shirt.  Or, you can help us celebrate the city where this all began by giving $50 and we'll send you our Home 4,000 t-shirt, and our brand new Amor por Juarez shirt and bracelet!

Join us and help us make this a summer we'll never forget!!
