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.


Upcoming Events

May 3

Viva la Luz Concert featuring Lee Coulter.

Lee Coulter is a singer/songwriter whose soulful performance and memorable songwriting have landed him opening spots for music legends Tom Jones and Chuck Berry, critic favorites Martin Sexton and Griffin House and had Sirius XM’s Coffee House channel dub him “the discovery of year” in 2011 for his debut album.

Originally from Brisbane, Australia and based in San Diego since 2006, he uses the combined power of lyrics and music to promote the idea that conscious connection is what separates us from the rest of the matter in the universe. He has spoken to audiences about this at three TEDx events. As one of his songs suggests, “Stardust and forces of attraction, that’s all we are.”
