Housing in the Philippines

ANCOP Housing - Samal

Donate to help transform lives


Despite a growing economy, the Philippines suffers from widespread economic disparities that leave some neighborhoods and regions in extreme poverty.

Many families, including those in the city of Samal, struggle to find safe homes and instead live in dangerous, leaking shacks with little protection from frequent storms. By partnering with Cross Catholic Outreach and our in-country ministry partner, you can help build homes and much more. A multi-year outreach empowers families to rise up from poverty and grow closer to Christ once they receive safe shelter.

Our Global Work

In everything we do, we remain focused on the Lord, serving with humility, fervor and love, and advancing Catholic evangelization. We work in partnership with church-based ministries and other faith-based organizations, creating and ideal synergy for the greatest impact.

Financial Accountability

At Cross Catholic, we meticulously honor the intent of our donors. All proceeds are restricted for the specific project for which they are raised. In that rare event that more funds are received than are required for a specific project, the additional funds will be used to meet the most urgent needs.

Fundraising & Administrative Expenses 5.97%
More than 94 percent of all organizational expenses, including donated goods, went directly to programs that help the poor.
Audited Financials FY2023

Donations from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures incurred through June 30, 2024, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
