Founded by ten-time Badwater 135 veteran Frank McKinney, and based on the principal that “stability begins at home,” the Caring House Project Foundation provides shelter to the world’s most desperately poor and homeless people. CHPF has impacted the poorest of the poor in the countries of Haiti, Honduras, Nicargua, Indonesia and Africa. As of today 10,616 have been provided with a new concrete home, and countless more are alive because of CHPF’s efforts. In 2017 CHPF will complete its 24th self-sufficient village in Guimbi, Haiti. That’s right, 24th self-sufficient village in 21 Haitian cities in last 14 years! Thank you for all you do Frank and Nilsa!
