Casas de Luz

Building hope without borders.


Building the foundation for a new chance at life.


About us

Casas de Luz is a social justice action program of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of San Dieguito. We were founded in 2005 by Kathy Faller and have built over 100 homes since.


Our mission

Our mission at Casas de Luz is to transform individuals, families and communities on both sides of the San Diego/ Tijuana border.


More than just a house.

We build houses not just to provide families with a structure to live in, but a foundation from which they can grow.


Build connections.

This was such a fun build. The group was great and the family was wonderful. I loved having all the neighborhood kids come out and help. This makes it feel like a community-building activity for other residents, on top of all the other good that we’re doing.
