Individuals, families, and groups who are interested
in a life changing experience are welcome to join us!

We welcome you to join us on a house build, at our school or at our medical clinic. Short-term, long-term and volunteering from home are all possibilities depending on what you are looking for!

We have had volunteers from over 29 countries that have come to Guatemala.  Our volunteers stay in the picturesque town of Antigua either in home-stays, hostels or hotels.



We welcome you to join us and immerse yourself in village life while building alongside your indigenous "family". From Houses to Homes focuses on building homes for families in need in Guatemala. This program is unique because From Houses to homes is one of the only organizations where you can build an entire house from start to finish in just 5 days. You work with our team of construction workers to dig a foundation, build walls, complete a roof, install windows and a door, as well as put on finishing touches, for example painting the home. On the last day a short and intimate ceremony takes place with the family, presenting the with the keys to their new home.


Thank you for your interest in group volunteer opportunities! Whether you are a family, school, mission group or a business we welcome you to join us! Each group should assign a group leader who will be the contact person for the group. From Houses to Homes will help design the trip. The options for group volunteers are:

  1. Construction (click here to read more about building a house in 5 days for a family in need)

  2. Volunteering at our school – painting, tutoring, artistic workshops, teacher assistance (click here to read more about volunteering at KemnOj School)

  3. Volunteering at our medical clinic (click here to read more about volunteering at St Joseph’s medical clinic)
