Committed to a brighter future for children, neighbors and communities.

We consider a healthy neighborhood to be one that is safe, clean, and diverse; one in which it makes economic sense for people to invest and one where neighbors manage change successfully.

Kingdom Building in North Waco

Building a home is much more than just arranging different construction materials in a way that is aesthetically pleasing and keeps the rain from falling on your head. A home, for many of our clients, is their constant in an ever-changing and tumultuous world. One of the most important aspects of our homebuilding process that rarely gets the spotlight happens behind the scenes. The clients we serve have an opportunity to join our staff in covering our empty lots and one-day homes in prayer. This spiritual discipline allows us to keep our efforts more focused on Kingdom work and less on the day-to-day difficulties of the construction process. Without fail, there will be unforeseen issues we must overcome with every house we build. We face these challenges knowing we have a bigger purpose: striving to create healthy neighborhoods one neighbor at a time.

With every home we build, we change the landscape of a street and even the neighborhood with the addition of another homeowner. This may seem insignificant, for what can adding a homeowner do to affect change for an entire community? We believe and have seen healthy neighborhoods begin to develop with just one person choosing to be an example for their street and for their neighbors. As in the parable of the mustard seed, though it is the smallest of all seeds, when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants. Grassroots is blessed to be able to come alongside our community to encourage and assist with homeownership all the while planting those mustard seeds of faith and praying the Lord will cause them to grow. With every home we build, we are investing in our vision of seeing a brighter future for children, neighbors, and communities.

When this happens, it's usually because the owner only shared it with a small group of people, changed who can see it or it's been deleted.

"If the topic of housing comes up, our immediate response may not be to think of a congregation, faith group, or even our own church community. Yet, faith groups – whether that be your own church or small work group – can be a strength in our communities in so many ways. From spiritual care and guidance to practical assistance and resources, our faith communities can be one of the solutions to address housing in Waco."
