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

Our Story Our Story

What started with fulfilling a 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. Fourteen years later 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. We have learned that hope is a pursuit and it is contagious. We have learned that if we want to go far we must go together. Join us and let's do something important together.

Why Homes? Why homes?

HOME is central to everyones development. Home is where you belong. Where you come from. While four walls and a roof do not make a home, it is a great place to start. From day one our team noticed that many of the most vulnerable communities of the world were not helpless. The simply needed some help. They needed a little hope. So by suppling the basic needs of shelter, nourishment, education, and health care you are providing the most vulnerable communities with a precious commodity of hope. Making a way for them to build HOME. With your help, together we are literally BUILDING FUTURES.
