Casas Por Cristo
One Week. One House. Life Change.
Casas por Cristo began building homes along the U.S. / Mexico border in 1993, first in Ciudad Juárez. They have since expanded to Ciudad Acuña, México; San Raymundo, Guatemala; and Santiago, Dominican Republic. To date, Casas has provided over 5,000 families with homes. They are dedicated to meeting the physical need of better housing as a way of also meeting the spiritual need for Jesus Christ.
Helping Restore Ability
Helping Restore Ability was founded as the Arlington Handicapped Association in 1977 by a young man with polio, Sam Provence, and his determined friends. Sam is believed to be the last victim diagnosed with polio in Tarrant County.
As services expanded beyond the city limits, Arlington Handicapped Association was renamed the Handicapped Resource Association in 1988. Beginning in 1999, Arlington Handicapped Association began doing business as Helping Restore Ability, a name that reflects the goals and mission without the implied restrictions of the word ‘handicapped.’ The legal name was changed to “Helping Restore Ability” in 2011.
