Starting in 2001 Team CrestWood joined forces with Fr. Pat Travers and students from Damien High School in La Verne, the alma mater of seven CrestWood employees, to travel to Mexico to build dignified housing for families in North/Western Mexico, the outlying areas of Tijuana. These dedicated volunteers work 12-hour days to build homes and other structures for needy families in Tijuana, Mexico. Many of CrestWood trade partners are also part of the team, donating materials, manpower and funds. Since 2001 this group effort has built up wards of 70 homes, 5 churches, and several community buildings for the people of Mexico.
