Build A Miracle
Build A Miracle
Several times a year, groups of Build A
Miracle volunteers head to Mexico for the
day to help build new homes.
After walking across the US/Mexico border,
volunteers are transported to the day's build site.
Usually more than 100 people participate
during a build day.  
Build sites are located in the suburbs of Tijuana.
These are family neighborhoods
and there has never been any concern
for the group's safety in the many years
of our trips across the Border.
There we meet up with dozens of local Build A
Miracle families and volunteers all ready to lend
a hand.
