casas por cristo
Driven by a desire to provide tangible expressions of God’s love and provision, Casas por Cristo began building homes along the U.S. / México border in 1993, first in Ciudad Juárez. We have since expanded to Ciudad Acuña, México and San Raimundo, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. Casas por Cristo (Homes because of Christ) creates important partnerships among various groups across international borders. To date, they have provided nearly 4,000 families with homes. But at Casas por Cristo, they go beyond building. They are dedicated to growing Christ’s church one home at a time by helping meet the physical and spiritual needs of their neighbors.

After spending a few summers living in East Africa, Andrew DeVaney was inspired to build a global community passionate about bringing locally led, comprehensive, and holistic change to the most underserved communities of Uganda. Though AsOne was a story initiated by Andrew, it has always been a story of many. It’s a story of Ugandans — not missionaries — making their communities a place to flourish. Four years later, with the help of more than 1,000 supporters, more than 100 travelers, many board members, and a team of 60 and growing in Uganda — AsOne has made its presence known. AsOne brings a bold solution to poverty alleviation — one that releases the agency and capacity of local individuals within the communities it serves for long lasting transformation.
