Long Term, Short Term and Even One Day Volunteer Opportunities
Casita Linda—Building hope one house at a time.
The founders and those who work with Casita Linda are a wonderful team of foreigners and Mexicans working together to create hope for impoverished local families. Donations and volunteers from people around the world make Casita Linda possible. In the years since Casita Linda’s founding, we have learned that a safe and secure home fulfills a very basic family need. Simple stoves for making meals, ready water for washing and laundering, basic things most of us take for granted, can change lives. Suddenly, there are fewer hardships, a brighter day, and renewed optimism that the future will be different and that anything is possible. Go here for all volunteer opportunities with Casita Linda.
