Corazón, Inc. 
"Thirty years ago, three Orange County residents felt a need to help the poor in several villages surrounding Tijuana. They provided food, clothing, basic supplies and spiritual help. In 1978 they officially formed Corazón as a nonprofit organization. During the early years Corazón helped by meeting the immediate needs with food, clothing and shelter. Volunteers repaired some of the 'homes' (actually shacks of pallets and cardboard) of the poor. This 'repairing' quickly turned to building complete houses. Building Houses Over the next five years Corazón developed a turnkey construction system for a 12’ x 20’ house with a wood floor and foundation. Using this system, a volunteer sponsor group on a one-day contribution event could build a complete home for a family. familia Corazón From 1983 to 1996, Corazón grew from building 8 houses a year to building 8 houses in a day. In 1995, the Familia Corazón program was conceived and developed as an overall approach to help families escape poverty while building a stronger community.... Today, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary, Corazón has built over 750 new houses and repaired hundreds more. We have profoundly affected the lives of over 1,000 families, provided annual scholarships to thousands of students and have witnessed several of our students graduate from college.... Currently Corazón has over 150 students in elementary school, 50 in middle and high school and five in college! The Familia program is currently assisting over 500 families in 5 communities in Baja California."  Laguna Hills
