History

It’s been a journey

As with anything, Build a Miracle started out as a journey. A journey to gather family and friends and to build one house a year. People got so excited about helping, that we soon realized we would need to start a non profit. One thing we have learned is that people are generous. People want to help. People care. All they need is a good program to care about. A program where people truly need help. A program where they can see that they are changing lives.

That’s what Build a Miracle is – a simple program that has grown because of the passion of it’s supporters. A program where hundreds, actually thousands, of lives have been changed on both sides of the border. People in Mexico have had their lives changed, not only because they have a safe and decent place to live, but because they have hope. People who don’t even know them have helped them to have a better life. People in the U.S. have had their lives changed because that’s just what happens when you experience the power of giving of yourself to another.
