About Us

Constru Casa is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the quality of life among Guatemalans living in extreme poverty through the provision of basic housing, support programs and community development projects related to health and education.

Latest News

Keep up to date with all the happenings at Constru Casa! We are constantly building and improving lives in Guatemala with the help of our volunteers, donors and social project partners. For an insight on our latest projects take a look at our latest news, our in-depth family stories, and our photo gallery.

Volunteer

Volunteering at Constru Casa offers a unique cultural experience. Our volunteers share intensive work time with the local masons, and have the opportunity to share the lives of an underprivileged Guatemalan family, all the while contributing to improve their lives through the building of a new house. You can also enjoy living in one of the most beautiful cities in Guatemala--Antigua!

Donate

We need your help! The number of families Constru Casa can help every year depends on the donations we receive. A Constru Casa house costs $5,000 including all materials and labor.

Ron Sack

Ron SackRon Sack is a lifelong resident of Nebraska and has been employed in a family owned building material business for over forty years. He is a graduate of the University of Nebraska where he studied Business Administration.

Ron and his wife Deb have always enjoyed travel and staying involved in various volunteer opportunities. Ron has been on six service trips to rural Mexico, where he worked with a school and the local medical clinic, providing equipment and much needed supplies. He has made three trips to work with Constru Casa in Guatemala with Nebraska volunteer groups. He also volunteered as an English teacher for six years at a local school teaching English to recently arrived immigrants, many of whom came from Guatemala. This also helped him to improve his Spanish.

Ron says 'I know that most volunteers with Constru Casa will say that the experience has really changed their lives. It is very gratifying to be part of a group that so directly improves the lives of so many very needy families. Possibly just as important, is how we change with the volunteer experience. Our view of real needs in the world, our acceptance of different cultures, and the knowledge of the fact that we can make a difference will always be changed. I am grateful to be a part of an organization that makes this opportunity possible.'
