Hope of Life Homes


Manifest Christ's mercy by rescuing Guatemalan families from deplorable living conditions.

This life-affirming, life-transforming ministry needs your support to continue caring for the poor. This clinic cannot operate without help from compassionate Christians like you!

Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. — Psalm 127:1

We have partnered with Hope of Life, a local charity in Guatemala and housing provider. Will you help us put a safe roof over the heads of poor families?


Give Them a Place to Call Home

A new home provides more than sturdy walls and a roof, it renews God-given dignity, sparks new dreams, and will strengthen faith – leaving an eternal impact on the poor.

The Need in Zacapa, Guatemala:
It's heartbreaking to see the poverty in remote areas of Guatemala – particularly the plight of children exposed to harsh elements and life-threatening diseases simply because of their living conditions.

House destroyed Hundreds of struggling families live in makeshift shanties fashioned from sticks, mud and pieces of plastic – most scavenged from the dump. Others rent small rooms or share a crowded part of another family's shelter, but few have anything we would call a safe or sturdy home. It is common for as many as 10 people to share these crumbling one-room huts, and they typically sleep on a dirt floor with little protection from wind or rain.

A Plan for Sturdy Homes:
Our simple house plan offers a low-cost solution to Guatemalan families' desperate need for safe, secure, sturdy homes they can truly call their own. Each house includes a solid foundation, waterproof roof, concrete walls, two bedrooms, a living room, and a lockable door and windows, plus a latrine. This simple, professionally designed and built structure provides privacy, improves hygiene, keeps out the rain and gives families peace of mind. As these homes represent a fresh start in life and are a tangible reminder of God's mercy and love, each family receiving a new home also receives a new Bible.
New Houses

When you sponsor a home, you provide:
•   A new level of human dignity and hope.
•   Protection from intruders and vermin.
•   A secure place to keep possessions.
•   Hygienic living conditions; freedom from illness.
•   Freedom from rent, providing money for food, medicine, education, etc.
•   A renewed sense of trust.



Others may be able to turn a blind eye to such misery, but we Christians are compelled to confront such suffering and take action. Act now and help Cross International give the life-changing gift of safe shelter!

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for providing a home to vulnerable Guatemalan families incurred through June 30, 2019, the close of our ministry's new fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
