Casitas de Corazon, Homes of the Heart. The hard dedicated work that goes into each home is very important, but what is more important are the hearts of those who build and who also receive the home. We are builders of house, we are the workers of the project, but the families that will ultimately live-in house are the ones that will make it a home.
Our goal is to first fulfill a need, or to give that little bit of help for families trying to establish roots in the Ensenada area. We not only believe in strong biblical foundations in the family, but we also believe that a solid foundation in our homes, and we work to provide such a foundation, and place the home on a solid rock, concrete. The project is a two-step process, and in the end a family is blessed with a home that is 24’x24’ or 24’x34’
From the very start you will be involved in every process of the building by mixing and pouring the concrete, constructing the walls, attaching the roof structure, hanging sheet rock and taping, and troweling on two coats of exterior plaster (stucco). Other extras include Romex wiring throughout, electrical outlets, light switches, flush mount lighting (secured with Fan boxes), sheetrock dropped ceiling, windows, outdoor light & outlet and Metal exterior door. Extra items can be added but would incur an extra cost and those items could be Insulation, solar power, ceiling fans, bathroom fixtures or even items of furniture.
What we are not able to do is texture and paint. Due to the type of construction, we advise that the house airs out and that the concrete and finish mud has completely dried. Another way to bless the family could be taking them shopping for paint. Yes, let them experience the fun and pride of picking out the colors for their new homes.
Mi Casa de Esperanza
Real Life Ministries has worked alongside Mi Casa de Esperanza for over 20 years. Casa Esperanza is a refuge home for single mothers and their children. Part of the program is to encourage the Mom’s to have a place of steady income through off-site employment, and to purchase land. As the mom’s complete the program RLM comes along side with Casitas de Corazon to build them their new place refuge and security, their new home.
Weather for a single family, or a Mother and her children ready to step out from the aid of Casa Esperanza, we hope you see the value in building project that will bring warmth, protection, and love. Come build with Casitas de Corazon and see what it like to build with your heart.
