Agents of Change – Building Homes in Tijuana with World Housing Organization

We are proud to be a part of this fabulous organization which has joined with World Housing in an effort to help raise funds to build homes in many of the poorest regions of the world. Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty has proudly stepped up to join the efforts and many of the agents have not only pledged a donation with every closed escrow, but also volunteered to help build a home for a very deserving family.  I was able to become one such volunteer recently and on a very hot Saturday, traveled to the La Gloria neighborhood in Tijuana to put in some sweat equity for this very deserving family. It was a long, hot and exhausting day, but I can’t remember ever feeling so fulfilled and gratified with the results of our efforts. It was a coordinated effort by several organizations and many independent volunteers who came together as strangers and parted at the end of the day as respected friends.  Most of all, the smiles and hugs from the family were the greatest reward. They worked hard along side us all day and their appreciation was evident by the tears that were shed as they received the keys to their new home. And, by the way, there were tears all around!

About World Housing:

World Housing is a hybrid organization of full time workers and volunteers. Every member of their team is socially focused, independent minded, and driven to make a positive social change in the world.  World Housing provides homes to families living in slums in the developing world, fostering communities where families can thrive with safety, security, and access to the resources that change lives.  World Housing believes that homes are the key turning point where the momentum of community begins to have effects that radiate beyond individuals and into entire families, villages, and countries.  The homes they build allow people to live safe, stable lives. Children who grow up in safe, stable homes have greater freedom to pursue education, and raise the standard of living for themselves, their families, and future generations to come.

World Housing Mission:

To create social change by connecting the world to be a better community.  A new home means a new start, the beginning of a life with safety, security and stability as a foundation. What grows from there is a restoration of dignity and hope for the future. Families and communities begin to thrive, bringing up a new generation of healthy, educated, and inspired leaders for their community.

Agents of Change:

  Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty has partnered with World Housing to help make a difference.  Sotheby’s ‘Agents of Change’ realtors have committed to making a contribution to World Housing for every home sold. 100% of every dollar committed will be used to build homes for impoverished families living in unimaginable conditions in Tijuana, Mexico.
