At EastLake Church, we believe that the best way we can impact our local and global community is by partnering with organizations that have already demonstrated integrity and effectiveness in there given area of service. EastLake Church partners with the worldwide organization Youth With A Mission (YWAM) for the house build project.
YWAM has built thousands of homes in the Baja region. YWAM screens, interviews and selects the families who are gifted with a home, and the stories of life change that come from the recipients are incredible. Target groups are the poorest of the poor – those who don’t have shelter improvement as their first priority because obtaining food and basic needs consumes all their resources. It is recognized that given the right assistance these groups will be able to change their circumstances and future productivity.
The children affected by the gift of a home have experienced benefits in their health and well being due to improved living conditions in their family as the stability of a home enables emotional and economic benefits, as well as educationally as they attend school and open more doors for their future productivity as citizens in their communities.
Through the Christmas Conspiracy, EastLake Church is able to fund the cost of each home built by EastLake Church volunteers. Volunteers are required to cover their own costs through the payment plan outlined below.
