Building Compassion

Our goal is to provide support when life-altering circumstances lead to inadequate housing. We target community service leaders in the hope to relieve their burden, so they can in turn be more effective at what they do. By providing a team oriented environment everyone has an opportunity to learn, mentor and give.

Years Serving The community


Since God led us to serve the Pascal’s home about 10 years ago, we have consistently committed to help those who generously help others.



Families' Lives changed

Hope is restored in the families who dwell within the new layers of paint and newly fastened doors.



Thousand Raised

Donations large and small have provided us the tools, materials, and resources to complete our mission.


Why We're Different

We are empowering youth, young adults, and whole communities to build, apply, and live a life of compassion. 

We provide willing hearts the connection to create teams and learn skills from one another that last a lifetime.

We serve those who have invested their lives to the community, and, despite all they have given to others, find themselves lacking adequate housing.



We listen to individual's needs, share their story, and gather a networked team who freely give of themselves and their resources to provide adequate housing to community leaders.  In addition, tangible needs are provided for within each recipients community. Bringing people together is what Building Compassion is all about.


Building Compassion gives from the heart with love of God, meeting people's needs as Jesus reached out and did.  Volunteers are His hands extended because "He was moved with compassion" for those around Him in need.


We provide the opportunity for youth and young adults to work alongside contractors and skilled laborers.  Many of these volunteers have not been given the opportunity to receive any vocational training.  They are rewarded with valuable practical skills, hands-on experience, self confidence, and the knowledge that they can make a difference in the lives of others.


Volunteers are afforded a unique opportunity to work in teams to complete specific tasks.  They receive exposure to planning, materials aquisition, scheduling, supervision, safety and the basics of a construction science.


Fundraising Campaign

Tiny Homes Lead to Big Growth



In 2019 we are going big with tiny homes! This fundraising campaign is to provide sustainable income for Building Compassion. Volunteers are giving their time, businesses are giving materials, and investors are empowering us to construct tiny homes to build our future. Selling tiny homes is just the beginning.



Our first tiny home is complete and ready to go to market! However, this is only step one. The big vision is greater than one simple home. After this home sells, we will invest in operating expenses, support staff & purchase another trailer. This will set the stage for the next tiny home to be built.



We have a dream for a “home” of our own. Building Compassion needs a headquarters and interns need a place to live and work. As we coordinate with a land developer and architect, we will acquire land to establish a headquarters and build a duplex to house interns on site.



So what makes this plan sustainable? On the land adjacent to our headquarters, we will add a small tiny home community. This will consist of a few of our own tiny homes to rent and a few spaces for individuals to rent to place their tiny homes. The rent from this community will provide a monthly income for general operating expenses.


Everything you donate is more than doubled as we reach to provide sustainable income for Building Compassion & growth for the years to come.

We will be holding an Open House. Stay tuned!


October 2009

I could never repay you for all your time and effort, but I am grateful to know that God is keeping a record. I love you all! You helped a widow who was in need, and I am so grateful for everything.
