1MISSION is a non-profit community development organization, currently operating in the "Earn a home by serving the community" space and aims to give people living in poverty a chance to build their own house by first serving their community. Headquartered in Phoenix, AZ, the organization was started by Jason Law, a former fire fighter, in 2008.
The Organization builds homes for people living in poverty through donations and grants and then asks the recipients to serve their communities throughout Mexico, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. Families who receive home earn their hours by building their neighbors' home, tending a community garden, training in public-health education and prevention, rebuilding roads and bridges, learning job skills, earning their GED, and various other community-led projects.
The organization has built 350 homes so far, with house recipients serving over 60,000 hours of community service.
