As we serve families through our different ministries, housing becomes a major part of what we do. With children sleeping on the dirt and parents going many night without sleep, we believe in the hope a new home can provide for a family. With strong Caribbean winds and rains the safety of these family are oftentimes in danger as well. New homes with a concrete foundation and safe roofing, provide so much hope. A new home brings peace as everyone can sleep under a sound roof; brings better health as everyone finds a way off the dirt floor; and brings hope for a safe future.
Ensuring safe housing for our families in the Starfish program and our employees at the school, orphanage and Rosie’s is so important to us. By providing a new home and ensuring the family is safe, we can then begin to focus on other areas of their life. See below, before pictures of the structures families we serve live in:
There are two blueprints we have for the houses we build. The first plan costs roughly $3,600 and is a one bedroom house with a small porch and indoor toilet.
The second plans costs roughly $4,800 and is a two bedroom house with a small porch and outdoor latrine. We provide these homes to families with more children.
