How We Build Compassion
The Haiker Family
Family of 8, the Haiker’s foster to adopt. Due to shifting foundation, pipes burst and flooded the little girl’s bedroom. We provided new flooring throughout the house and repaired the damaged walls.
The Rabiu Family
Hannah Rabiu has served the body of Christ for decades through her work in international missions. Today, through an organization called Wholehearted & Courageous, she oversees training of local leaders, community classes, and helps women experiencing grief and trauma.
Springbreak Fundraiser 2019
U.T. students joined skilled labor professionals to build a Tiny Home and raise money for Building Compassion.
The Bass Family
Ed and Leah Bass bought a desperately needy home in a rural area of Central Texas. They had served together as bi-vocational ministers for 20+ years and were eager to transform their house into a dream home.
The Nelson Home
Becky Nelson opens her home to international students who attend Texas A&M University. She provides meals, entertains & educates through friendship ministry. In need of more space, we added a full bath & converted the garage.
The Garza Family
Volunteers, contractors, and craftsmen worked on the home of Lolly Garza, whose family acts as caretakers for many of the elderly and disabled individuals living in the impoverished Hispanic community of Rancho Vista, TX.
The Randolph Family
Rodeo chaplains, Mike & Rosemary take to the road and bring church to the prairie. They decided to make a difference to those around them in the cowboy culture. Their hundred year old house wasn’t level and without central air & heat.
The Boy's Home
Imagine an 1,800 square foot home after 700 teenage boys have come and gone finding a place to live rather than on the streets. Hungry for God home was in desperate need of organization, cleaning, expansion, and renovation.
Pleasant Hills Children's Home
Two Hundred and Twenty-Five volunteers gathered to renovate two houses for neglected, homeless and needy children.
The Ortner Family
Jeff & Elrenna Ortner were bi-vocational ministers, serving their community as both school teachers & church pastors for 20+ years. Jeff was diagnosed with cancer and they were no longer able to care for the home.
Five months after wildfires displaced 1,600+ families, destroyed 35,000+ acres of land, and killed 2 people in Bastrop County, news coverage had slowed, public awareness had fallen, and most people had forgotten the tragedy of that day.
