    OUR MISSION 

     

    Corazón Building Community Across Borders

    Corazón exists to serve the poor and everything we do is powered by people, people who are heartened by helping the poor.  Corazón relies on compassionate, energetic and generous volunteers, partners and donors who understand that they can make a difference by giving to the poor.Since 1978, Corazón has mobilized hundreds of U.S. and Mexican volunteers to work in the poor communities of Tecate and Tijuana, Mexico where many are living conditions that are simply untenable.  It is no wonder that nearly half of Tijuana’s population of 1.3 million residents live on less than US$200 per month.

     

     

    Our Mission

    Building Community by strengthening families, enabling service, promoting self-sufficiency, and inspiring mutually beneficial relationships across borders.

     

    Strengthening families

    We direct our programs on a family’s physical, educational, social, and economic needs in specific communities. Significant change can only occur if we focus on the family’s multiple needs.  The change must be desired by all members of the family, who are then willing to obtain training and education and work to improve their situation with the support of those who live in their community and from Corazón.  Resource limits and logistical limitations require that we focus on a few specific communities near the U.S. and our Tijuana office.

    Enabling service

    Participation in Corazón allows both U.S. volunteers and Mexican participants to work together in service of others, providing the rewards of accomplishing good works together, and a sense of broader community among all involved that crosses geographical and culture borders.

    Promoting self-sufficiency

    Participants learn they can improve their skills and take more direction of their own lives through training, education, and joining with their community to direct and complete activities; volunteers learn they can make a difference in other’s and their own lives through their work, initiative, and leadership. Both Mexican and U.S. participants are empowered by these accomplishments and experience a greater sense of fulfillment in their lives.

    Across borders

     Joining together to accomplish these tasks break down sociological, cultural, and geographic boundaries and provide a sense of being part of a larger Community with common goals, desires, and dreams.

    March

    Dear Sponsors, Donors, and Volunteers:

    The health and safety of our donors, sponsors, volunteers, employees, and communities are always our top priority. There have been many questions about whether to proceed with scheduled builds due to the coronavirus. We have been closely monitoring the evolving situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus). We are aware of the uncertainty felt by so many worldwide, and we will follow the guidelines of the US State Department and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to reduce the spread and impact of the virus.

    Global Health Advisory March 11, 2020, Level 3 Reconsider Travel - “The Department of State advises US citizens to reconsider travel abroad due to the global impact of COVID-19. Many areas throughout the world are now experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks and taking action that may limit traveler mobility, including quarantines and border restrictions. Even countries, jurisdictions, or areas where cases have not been reported may restrict travel without notice.”    

    After much prayerful consideration about what the right course of action should be, all builds in March will be rescheduled. We plan to resume our builds starting on April 18, but we will decide whether to proceed with building by April 3.  We will continue to assess the situation both in the US and in Baja.  

    In anticipation of the March house builds, the cement foundations have already been poured, materials have been delivered, and families have prepared for construction of their new homes.  We will be reaching out to all sponsors to discuss the following alternatives for suspended projects:

    1) Use the funding to sponsor the construction of the homes by Mexican participants and any volunteers willing and able to participate. 
    2) Rescheduling the projects as soon as possible after our operations with volunteers can be resumed.  We have several available dates at this time in late April and June and throughout the summer and early fall.

    Thank you for your continued support - the health of our sponsors, volunteers, and participants is important to us, and you will be a key determinant of our decision on when to proceed with house building projects.

    May God bless and watch over you and your loved ones.
