Our ProjectsHow You Build Compassion


Building Compassion was contacted by a pastor in Giddings, TX about a congregational member who served his community as a volunteer for a local nonprofit. The father, Joseph Zachary, had been injured while working at the nearby correctional facility. His wife, Angelica, and their 4 children were grateful for their home because of its family history, but were unable to restore it to liveable conditions and were days away from the property being condemned.

To prevent the family from being homeless, Building Compassion stepped in. Scott Lansing, CEO & Co-Founder, met with the Lion's Club to network with local businesses who ultimately provided food for volunteers, reconstruction materials, and beds for the children and their parents.

Message from the Zachary's

  That first night back in what is now known as our “HOME,” we could not sleep. My husband and I kept walking throughout the house and realizing it was not a dream, and just praising God for the enormous blessing He blessed us with: all the kids had a room to sleep in, everyone had a bed and we were all very comfortable. Just hearing the wind blow outside - we knew the wind was blowing, but we could not feel it inside the house. Now, when it rains we are not moving furniture around due to the leaks in the roof. Cold days & cold nights come and we are still comfortable and warm inside our home.

We have many people to thank for the Blessing but first of all we Thank God... May God continue to bless every one of you and know we may not know every single one of you by name, but you are all in our prayers. Thank you for allowing God to use you to give us this blessing.  

Thank you from The Zachary’s
