Rosarito is a resort town 10 miles south of the US border, an easy drive from San Diego. Rosarito is adjacent to Tijuana, which is one of the fastest growing cities in Mexico. Over 5,000 people move to the area every month, hoping to work in one of the city’s several hundred factories. The minimum wage in Tijuana is less than $5/day and living conditions for most families are difficult.
Hope Sports guests stay on the Homes of Hope 15-acre ocean view campus. This beautiful property has a quaint little café, a multi-purpose sports field, and a walking track.
Building a home is a simple process, but the result spreads hope throughout an entire community. Plus by uniting with other athletes to serve these impoverished families, athletes experience real teamwork. It’s important to develop a purpose beyond our sporting achievements. By connecting to greater meaning, athletes can thrive in their sports and in every aspect of their lives.
- Build teams consist of 10-25 people per home. Come by yourself, with your family or as a group. We’ll make sure enough volunteers are on each house.
- It takes just 2 days to build a home.
- Build supervisors will show you what to do every step of the way.
- All tools and equipment are provided.
- You’ll meet and get to know the family you are building for.
- A new home has a 7-10 year economic impact on a family in need.
- On the last day of the build, you’ll go shopping with the family for home essentials.
- Keys are given to the family in a dedication ceremony.
- You can engage with the local community through activities like soccer and baseball games.
- A detailed workbook containing thoughtful prompts and exercises will guide you through your Hope Sports experience.
