Project Mercy has been improving the lives of the poorest and needy in the outlying neighborhoods of Tijuana since 1991. The San Diego non-profit constructs basic sturdy homes for the poorest families in the outlying neighborhoods of Tijuana, Mexico. La Jolla Community Church participates by sending members from the “Mexico House Building” with Project Mercy. The Mexico House Building team has built over twenty homes in Tijuana over the years, including their participation in Project Mercy’s Baja Challenge.
The reason behind building the homes is simple: inadequate housing leads to health hazards, plus a strong house is able to withstand environmental hazards. There are no homeless or temporary shelters or soup kitchens for those who are hungry and displaced. Residents fear for their children with each approaching winter because shelters cannot withstand high winds and icy conditions.
Here’s how you can help: 1) be informed, 2) volunteer your time and resources, and 3) support the efforts with your financial gifts.
Project Mercy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency based in San Diego, CA. To contact Project Mercy, reach out to Paula Claussen at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Project Mercy page:
