Please let us know ahead of time to help you plan any offsite work, we want to make all the proper arrangements for you to be as productive as possible. Below are a few options during your stay with us BUT orphanage visits, church visits, daycare visits, etc. are all options we can help you with. You might have your own ideas!! Please let us help you make a difference here in Baja.
Community Food Distributions
We are blessed here at Door of Faith and we have been given the opportunity (and responsibility) to give back to the community in a variety of ways. One way that you can help reach out to our community is through food and/or toiletry distributions. Our volunteer staff can take your group to surrounding impoverished communities to hand deliver care packages to families who are in need. Following are some sample care packages:
- Powdered milk
- Fresh fruit and/or vegetables
- Canned goods
- Spaghetti sauce
- Canned tuna
- Toilet paper
- Toothbrushes and toothpaste
- Hair brushes and combs
- Household cleaning products
Along with our House Building Program (more information linked here) we coordinate other light construction projects for poor families in our area. Projects might include a new roof, a new retaining wall, simple room additions, pouring some cement, or even painting a house for a family in our town. If you feel this is right for you please let us know and we can discuss current projects along with costs and time needed.
Tijuana Breakfast Club
We partner with several ministries, one that we truly enjoy working with prepares a hot breakfast for many children living in pallet shacks in Tijuana. Monday through Friday, with prior notice, we can host your group to serve the children in this area alongside this great ministry. This involves an EARLY drive to Tijuana, preparing up to 200 meals, serving the children, and then clean up. This is a great learning experience and a great way to serve children here in Baja.

Life in the Canyon
We partner with a community center in the center of the retired dumps in Tijuana (area of pallet shacks) This great ministry helps with food, medical, housing, prayer, and general support for people living in some very rough conditions. We frequently send teams to help with whatever the current needs are. Life in the Canyon information.
