Ten Thousand Homes is a non-profit organization building hope and home for the world’s most vulnerable.

Our Story Our Story

What started as fulfilling one simple wish for a house became so much more. People, just like you, from all around the world have joined together to provide basic human needs of shelter, nutrition, and education to thousands. We feel that we are only getting started. Yet, we have learned so much along the way. We have learned to not give up doing work that has no end, that hope is a pursuit and it is contagious, and we have learned that if we want to go far we must go together. Join us and use your what you have to change lives.

Why Homes? Why Homes?

We are on a mission to build HOME. We recognize that homes are the backbone of a strong community. Providing HOME is more than putting a family in a house. It is creating that sense of belonging that everyone needs and desires. It is a truth we can all embrace-we all want to know that we are loved. Our vision is ordinary people making an extraordinary investment into the lives of the poor and vulnerable. While this vision is too large for us alone; we believe that everyone can play a part. We invite you to come see for yourself and experience both the beauty and the heartbreak of the communities we serve.

    In sub-Saharan Africa, more than 34 million children are growing up as orphans. Of those, more than 11 million are kids who have been orphaned by HIV/AIDS. For every 10 children in the world who have lost their parents to AIDS, 8 of them live in sub-Saharan Africa.
