Our Official Beginning 2004: Joe Collins, Founder of From Houses to Homes
After visiting Guatemala in 2001 and experiencing the sub-standard living conditions first hand, Joe could not get the indelible picture of poverty out of his mind. A country filled with breathtaking volcanoes, verdant hillsides, tight-knit families, traditions and pride, however most of the indigenous people were living in squalor. The government programs to help the poor were, and continue to be, either ineffective or inadequate, not to mention discriminatory.
