About Us

Let's Build Something Life Changing. 

 

For families living in underserved communities, life-changing opportunities are not always within reach. Corazón is an active group of committed volunteers from the US and México that build homes and open doors for youth, adults, and communities for our neighbors in Northern México. 

Our organization believes in the following four pillars when providing service:

Self-Sufficiency

Corazón's unique model does not give hand-outs, but rather helps people help themselves through services exchange, support, education, and training. 

Opportunity

Corazón offers many opportunities - for participants, volunteers, and donors - to dramatically impact the lives of others and improves their own lives throughout the process. 

Dedication 

Corazón's wealth of volunteers are active, talented volunteers who share an intrinsic need to help others and share their gifts in tangible ways with those in need. 

Belief 

For more than 35 years, Corazón volunteers, donors, and beneficiaries - of all faith traditions - have shared a common belief in family, faith, and friendship to form lifelong bonds that know no borders. 


 

Corazón Programs 

Corazón Construction: To Provide Shelter, Security and Hope

Construction projects, such as our home builds and house repairs, ensure that our organization can provide safe and secure homes for families in our communities. 

Volunteer groups, led by trained and experienced lead builders, construct 16x20 homes for families in one day -- therefore no experience is necessary to volunteer in these projects. 

House builds are sponsored by dedicated donors/groups. For more information on how to sponsor a home build visit our Home Build Sponsorship page. 

 

Corazón Youth: We Build Character and Create Educational Opportunities

Corazón offers accessible tutoring and scholarship opportunities for students in our communities to excel and achieve their academic endeavors. In addition to this, our Corazón Youth program hosts annual summer camps for youth to engage in extra learning opportunities. 

Our Corazón Youth Scholarships are heavily dependent on donations we receive from our supporters. For more information on how you can sponsor a student's education please visit our Education Donation page.  

 

Corazón Family and Community: We Help Develop Self-Sufficient, Safe, and Nurturing Communities

Our Corazón Family and Community Program addresses the needs families rely on to raise strong, healthy, and sustainable communities.

Our community centers, such as our Cerro Azul Community Center, create a safe and environmentally friendly space for our community members to meet and lead events and for our organization to hosts workshops for families in our communities.  

This program focuses on the importance of health education and building necessary life skills -- therefore many of our workshops cover domestic violence, gardening, sewing, job training, leadership and more.
