House Building

Building a house for a family is one option for missions teams visiting Welcome Home. Our staff will identify and screen potential families and do all the preparation for house projects.

A standard house is a 18′ x 20′ cement block structure, without plumbing or electrical. Base price is $6,000 (subject to change). The Welcome Home construction crew, under the direction of foreman Jose Luis, will initiate the project before your team’s arrival and will provide supervision and instruction for your work crew in completing the house build.

Teams electing to build a house must be comprised of a minimum of 12 adults committed to working a full 5 days. On the final day of construction, the team and Welcome Home staff will gather to hand over the house keys to the family and dedicate the house to the Lord.
