Tijuana, Mexico: House building for the Sarabia-Diaz family. Their new home is next door to their parents and grandparents homes where the family raises their own goats, rabbits, and chickens. Pablo works at one of the factories in town and Luz works at a local grocery store. Pablo and Luz are expecting their first child in December and they are grateful that they will now have a safe home, close to their parents, so they can all be together when the baby comes.
The house building team, thanks to Amor.org, consisted of folks of all ages from Henderson, Nevada; Southern California; and Northern California. The Northern California crew, representing LifeSupportM.org, was Jeff, Leona, and Daniel Estrada (Leona’s work colleague at Dominican University of California).
Thanks to our generous LifeSupportM.org donors, and the Dominican University of California’s Kathryn McGovern Community Service Award, for helping us raise the funds for the mission – especially since it gave us the ability to welcome Daniel to the Life Support Crew! And, thank you to all the administrative staff, Mexico pastors, camp staff, field staff, and fellow team members that make these missions possible.
p.s. The week before we built for the Sarabia-Diaz family, Jeff built a double wide home for a family just down the street. So many blessings for making good things happen in the world!
Co-Founder, Jeff Davidson, from Marin County, traveled to Tijuana, Mexico, and Tecate, Mexico for a house building mission. Jeff spent three weeks working in collaboration with Amor.org and the amazing youth volunteers from across the US and with other mentors working directly with the youth.
This project worked on 20 houses, completing 15 of them, for local at-risk and impoverished families. Jeff also delivered a donation of $255.00 (US) to the Casa Hogar Sion Orphanage to assist them in furthering their mission of providing shelter and support to orphan children. The money goes towards necessities such as clothing, shoes, and toiletries.
Tijuana, Mexico: Building homes and building relationships!
Thank you to our generous donors for helping us make good things happen in the world!
Along with learning how to garden, compost and care for chickens and the land, LifeSupportM.org’s COMFY Garden youth volunteers discuss, explore, and practice a broader set of life skills in the areas of Money Management, Time Management, Leadership and Ethics, Relationships, Listening Without Fixing, Team Building, and Life Planning. Looking forward to seeing what grows from the seeds of life that are planted this spring!
Thank you team members, donors, family, and friends for sending us out
into the world to do good works – and congratulations, Brooke, on
accomplishing the first leg of your around the world adventure!
Life Support Intern and Administrative Apprentice, Brooke Griffin, is getting ready to embark on a life journey!
First stop is Tecate, Mexico, to build homes for families. Then she will embark on a seven month around the world trip from Mexico, to New Zealand, to Southeast Asia, to Europe, and then back home again. She is setting out on this journey to explore the way that people find happiness and life’s purpose while living and surviving in their every day lives. She will be writing, recording, and photographing her experiences to share as she goes along with hopes of writing a book about her experiences upon her return.
Brooke’s job at Life Support has been to care for the COMFY Garden, keep our offices in order, and work with our social enterprise clients doing bookkeeping, office administration, office organization, and personal and professional support. We at Life Support are so happy to have Brooke as a team member to help make good things happen in the world!

LifeSupportM.org is collecting donations to help two families in Merced County who have suffered severe losses in recent house fires. There are babies in need of diapers and clothing. There are mothers and fathers in need of household supplies and furniture. Anything you can spare in the way of funds and supplies would be greatly appreciated.
On December 2nd, in Merced County there were two house fires that had sad outcomes. Fire one was at a home of a family of five. The mom and one of the kids made it out and the dad went back into the home to try to save the other two kids. Unfortunately the dad and the two kids died in the fire leaving the mom and a 13 month old without a home or a family and they are in the burn center. Fire number two was at a home that was a complete loss. The family did get out ok but they did lose everything. If that is not bad enough they are expecting their first child, a girl, TODAY. These families need everything from clothes to furniture and more. Thank you in advance for your help.
