The 2023 Season is underway and  Ja’bode, short for “Jamaican Abode”, has resumed its building!  Mission Jamaica missionaries help make simple, decent and affordable housing a reality for families that are in the greatest need. Building a family a home!  There is a lot of work that goes in to building an approx. 16'x20' home. Work can include digging footings, bucket brigades to pour concrete, building the structure, installing windows, walls, and a roof.... and lots of painting. A Ja'bode home is more than just building a home.  Missionaries come together with the future new owners and neighbors in the community to work side by side on the construction. Building relationships, sharing a meal, and seeing the new home come together over 3 days makes this experience especially rewarding. Costs-Ja’bode building cost have risen drastically the last couple of years to $7000-$7500 to cover the material cost for one home. A home that is life changing for the families we partner with.
