Wednesday, December 18th an arsonist destroyed three houses, including one built by San Diego volunteers for a family of twelve. The family now has no home and is currently sleeping outside (Read NBC 7 News article here).

How can you help?

Immediate needs include a tarp, men's and women's clothing, beds, and bedding. To donate items, please email donations@casasdeluz.com.

We are trying to raise the money to rebuild this family's home as fast as possible! Please consider joining with us in our goal of giving this family a home for the holidays by making a tax-deductible donation. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Creating self-sustaining change through youth empowerment, cross-cultural relationships, and leadership development.


Casas de Luz focuses on three main programs through which we hope to help build sustainable communities in Tijuana. With the help of volunteers and interns we do upwards of ten builds a year, collect and deliver donations weekly, and execute various other community revitalization projects.
