Amor provides each missions team with the tools and resources that are necessary to build a home alongside a family in need. Amor carefully selects the home site, provides standard building plans, and equips each group to complete a home in about 4 days. While on your Amor Mission Trip, missions teams will stay in conditions similar to those of the families they are serving.
Since 1980, Amor has been perfecting the house building process in Mexico, making this the safest, most efficient, affordable trip possible. We've worked with over 330,000 volunteers to build over 17,300 homes. Amor typically builds an 11’x22’, two-room home with a concrete floor, stucco-finished exterior, weather sealed roof, two windows, and a door. An Amor house is a simple design, built according to the standards of the community so that a group without skilled labor or power tools can still complete the project.
The need is still staggering for millions of families in Mexico. Continue reading to discover more about the need and how Amor partners with the local community to meet those needs.
