About us

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.

Internship Application 2019-2020

Interested in applying to be a part of our youth leadership team? Our youth leadership team does all of the background work for Casas de Luz, making home builds, cross-cultural activities and much more possible. It is a great opportunity to learn leadership and teamwork skills that students will be able to apply in their future careers.

The CDL internship program has made a huge difference in my life. I feel like I get the chance to actually make a change in the world. I’m given my own responsibilities and I take on my own projects. I get to turn my ideas into a life-changing reality for families in TJ.
