Today, 52% of Mexicans live under the national poverty line. This is true even in San Miguel de Allende (named the #1 City in the World 2017 by Condé Nast). San Miguel is located in Guanajuato, one of the poorest states in Mexico.

Casita Linda helps famililes in the greater San Miguel area who have an income of less than $275 USD per month build their own homes. By providing a dignified and safe environment—a casita linda or pretty little home—we empower families and change lives.

We recently built our 111th home!

With your help we can build 100 more.

We support our communities by offering workshops on education, family planning, family communication skills, water conservation and other important topics. Families are turning their lives around, building from the foundation of a safe, secure home. With your help, we can provide a brighter future to many more families.
