It is with great excitement that Open invites you to join us in building a home for a deserving family in Tijuana, Mexico in May, 2019 through a great program called Homes of Hope Youth With A Mission (YWAM)! This event is for the entire family and children are warmly invited to join in all aspects of the home building weekend program.  It will be hard work, but a fun and life changing experience.

Is it safe?   The gang violence in Mexico (and especially in Tijuana) has subsided over the past years. We always travel in groups and the YWAM staff has radios and cell phones at all times. We only build in “safe” areas and we are warmly welcomed by all of the neighbors in the community. YWAM has built over 5,000 homes in the Tijuana and Ensenada area in the past 25 years while hosting over 100,000 “builders” without any personal safety incident. This weekend promises to be very special so please don’t miss it!

An incredible family opportunity!
