Building Houses For Hope – Shelter Canada

Golf Tournament June 22nd, 2017 at Woodside Golf Course, Airdrie

12:30pm Lunch  |  1:30pm Shotgun Start  |  Dinner / Silent Auction

Shelter Canada is an organization with its roots in Airdrie that has grown to include caring people from all across Canada with the same mission…to build homes and bring hope to the poorest of people in El Salvador.

In 2002, a men’s team of 10 from Airdrie went to El Salvador and built 3 houses in one week.  The task at hand seemed daunting!  How would we ever make a difference?  Over the next 14 years, God has shown us that through His work, making a difference would indeed be possible!  In the first week of November 2016, shelter completed building it’s 2,000th home in El Salvador.

The houses provide shelter and a home for families who have been displaced by natural disasters and civil war.  The house recipients express their gratitude for the shelter and security the homes provide; but, more importantly, they express that their prayers and hopes have becomes realities.  Each family that receives a house typically participates in the building of their home.  They are so grateful and proud of their new house.

The house material are purchased locally from a Salvadorian company.  Each team is responsible for raising the funds required for the houses as well as their travel and in-country costs.  Ninety-five percent of all funds raised for Shelter Canada goes directly to the work in El Salvador.  The remaining five percent is administrative costs for The Great Commission Foundation – the organization that administers all Shelter Canada’s funds.

The Shelter Canada Building Houses for Hope Golf Tournament would not be a success without the generous donations from people and organizations such as yours.  Your participation is truly appreciated!
