Aqua-Guard Founders lead Homes of Hope trip to Mexico for 15th time

Posted on May 26, 2014 by Nigel Bennett  |  4065 Views

This month Aqua-Guard’s founders and families lead their 15th group to Ensenada in Mexico to build homes for families in need. Aqua-Guard and staff are very proud to have been part of the “Homes of Hope” initiative since 2003.

This year was a very special and emotional trip.  The team consisted of 32 friends and family along with our Good Friends Group, which had another 25+ participants.  Between the two groups we were able to build two homes for two beautiful Mexican families in need.

Most of the builders are families that have come with us 7 or 8 times.  It is really amazing to see everyone’s kids grow over the years; first starting as painters and now raising walls/working on the roof.  They have all grown into caring and giving young adults.

Every time it is a very emotional moment when we select someone in our group to pass the keys over to the mother of each family.

"We are very pleased to support “Homes of Hope” since 2003.”
