Steps to Apply:
1. Make an inquiry
Click here to make an inquiry for your group. Our Homes of Hope registrar will receive your inquiry and contact you with information on how to register your group.
2. Send in a deposit
Send in a deposit to reserve the date of your house build. The deposit is $75 per person in your group, and it is non-refundable.
The per person deposit must be paid within 30 days in order for us to secure the date you selected. You will receive a quote and invoice from our office. Click here to make a payment.
3. Fill out forms
After your group is registered, we will send you a link to some mandatory forms online. Every member of your group must fill out a "Release of Liability" and a "Consent for Medical Treatment" form on this link.
All minors traveling without a parent or legal guardian need an "Affidavit of Parental Consent" signed by the parent/guardian. This is to comply with Mexican law and it allows the minor to cross the border with the group. Click here to download the form, then print it out and bring it.
Eight to ten weeks before your trip, download and fill out the "Arrival/Departure Form." Then, send it back to us.
4. Passport check
If someone in the group does not have a passport, they should apply for one as soon as possible. It can take up to six weeks to receive a U.S. passport. Each person in the group should also bring a photocopy of their passport.
5. Pay fees
The total balance of all fees, for the group and the house, is due six weeks prior to your arrival. Click here to make a payment.
6. Review the agenda
The field coordinator will send your group’s agenda, logistics, preliminary build information, and emergency contact information, approximately four weeks prior to your arrival. Review the information and if there are any changes regarding your group, update our registrar.
7. Review final details
Approximately ten days prior to your arrival, you will receive the final details of your trip from the field coordinator. Review the information and if there are any last minute changes, update the field coordinator.
