Building a home requires approximately $25,000-$30,000 of materials and 1200+ hours of labor. Families from the states donate or raise needed funds and, working alongside the prospective homeowners, provide the labor to construct each home. Thirty plus volunteers spend five days working full-time constructing each home during their Christmas holiday. Volunteers are involved from start to finish with tasks ranging from laying cinderblock and framing walls, to applying roofing materials.
