Thank you for taking the time to visit our Caring House Project Foundation page. My name is Frank McKinney, and I’m a “philanthro-caplitalist.” I have spent the last 25+ years creating some of the most magnificent oceanfront estate homes in the world, each created on speculation.

In one of my books; Burst This! Frank McKinney’s Bubble- Proof Real Estate Strategies, I share my approach for attaining generational success in real estate.

I feel I am qualified to do so, as I started many years ago with a $50,000 fixer upper and now recently sold Acqua Liana, the world’s largest and most opulent certified “green” home at $23 million.

As far as high-end real estate goes, we will also make a HUGE market changing announcement just after January 1, 2016 regarding a new design and project – stay tuned!

But back to Caring House Project, and its work in Haiti…

Frank, what does this have to do with Caring House Project and caring for the world’s poor?”

Quite a bit. Stay with with me for a minute.

In all, I have written 5 bestselling books, but none more impactful than another new release; The Tap.

In The Tap I share the most important spiritual principle for succeeding in the business we are all in, the business of life. I explain how God has tapped me (and taps you, too) many times in life, answering prayers and presenting life-changing opportunities.

The Tap shows how to sensitize yourself to feel then act on your life’s great “Tap Moments,” embracing the rewards and responsibilities of a blessed life.

And that is exactly what happened to me in 1998, when I experienced the most epiphaneous tap moment of my life and acting on that “tap” by starting the Caring House Project Foundation.

All life’s successes are a blessing, but what it’s all for?

I began by doing my best to live by the life mantra that happens to be a passage from the Bible; Luke 12:48: “Much will be required of the person entrusted with much, and still more demanded of the person entrusted with more.”

I felt the best way to reflect that mantra was by starting a foundation that cared for those who had no shelter. After all, I’m simply in the housing business, and felt I should be providing that most basic need to those who have no home.

Stability begins with a home. Without the need of shelter being met, there is little hope.

What started so small, providing housing for $1 a month to elderly homeless people here in the United States, has grown tremendously.

CHPF has impacted the poorest of the poor in the countries of Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Indonesia, Africa and here in the U.S.

Caring House Project in Haiti

CHPF’s primary involvement has been in Haiti, currently the poorest country in world.

Since 2003 and into 2016, through CHPF donors like you, we will have invested over $5 million into creating self-sufficient villages in Haiti.

With your help, by the end of 2016, CHPF will have built 23 villages in the Haitian cities of Brinet, Tante Jeanne, Ravine a’ Couleuvre, St. Marc, Roseaux, Anse Rouge, Gonaives(2), Port au Prince (Cite Soleil), Testasse, Ft. San Michael, Los Cacaos, Cap Haitian (Blue Hills), Ange Village, Paroty (2), Terre Rouge, Fond Rouge, Torbek, Chameua, Mannual, Makandal and Mahotiere/Rampa all at no cost to the beneficiaries.

A Little More History…

Caring House Project Foundation’s impact started so small, has grown, and continues with your help. Here are a few highlights…

The CHPF started domestically in 1998 by purchasing rundown single-family homes, refurbishing them, then renting to elderly homeless people for $1 per month. We are as committed as ever to our domestic efforts, as they continue into 2016.

On 2/11/02 the CHPF earned its non-profit status (501c3).

In 2002, we took our initiative to Leon, Nicaragua, the 2nd poorest country in the Western hemisphere, where we built a village for 156 homeless people and realized we could invest $500+/- and touch a life with new shelter.

In 2003, we built our first village in Haiti for 200 homeless in Cite Soleil, outside Port Au Prince, the poorest city in the poorest country in the world.

In February of 2004, we finished a small village for 115 poor & homeless in Choloma, Honduras.

In December 2004, we completed “Village De La Foi (Village of Hope) for over 1000 homeless in Blue Hills, Cap Haitien, Haiti.

In 2005 we built two large villages, one in the Aceh Besar district of Indonesia, an area ravaged by the tsunami and the other in Gonaives, Haiti, a city that was destroyed by the 2004 hurricanes.

Later in 2005 we built a tunnel for safe passage for school children in Brazil. The reason the children needed safe passage in unthinkable and not appropriate for reprinting (email if you are interesting hearing why we were moved to build this tunnel).

In 2006 we completed Ange Village in Haiti, our first large scale, wholly self-sufficient village combining shelter and care for orphaned children (a “family home” orphanage), education of all village and neighboring children (school), shelter for villagers (homes), clean water (water wells, pumps & storage tanks), renewable food source (an animal husbandry), a building for fellowship and worship (a community center) and a central location for medical aid to be distributed (a clinic).

In 2007 we completed a new 1,900 sq. ft., school in the El Japon community of Choloma, Honduras. The new school now accommodates over 300 children who would have had to cease their education after the 6th grade. Why Choloma, Honduras? As you see from above, in 2004, CHPF created a small village for 20 previously homeless families a few blocks from the school. Now this village is thriving and, with this new found stability, it was time to focus on educating the villagers. In terms of ROD (return on donation), the reward is incalculable.

Scroll above where there are donation options for your consideration.

Also in 2007 CHPF completed “Children’s Village,” a project to protect the street children of Uganda, Africa. The project included constructing 20 rooms in 2 buildings to house and care for 100+ street children in one of the poorest countries in Africa.


Since 1998 and into 2016, here in the United States, we have honored hundreds of donation requests from individuals, causes and organizations such as our huge 16-city, 24-day, 4,071 mile Survival to Thrival Tour, Kids in Distress, Operation Rescue The Children, Child In Need, Food For The Poor, Christians Reaching Out to Society, The Cooperative Feeding Program, homeless assistance affordable housing initiatives, hurricane recovery, disaster assistance and the many other miscellaneous requests that come in weekly.

In 2008, as further evidence of our self-sufficient initiative, we completed a village in Los Cacaos, Haiti, near the Dominican Republic boarder, combined 35 double homes, a 2,922 sq. ft. school, a large 2,520 sq. ft. community center (kitchen, feeding area, worship, bank room and pharmacy), a health clinic, renewable food sources to maximize annual yields (goat farm w/ 50 goats, chicken farm w/ 400 chickens, 5 Tilapia fish ponds, vegetable farm w/ 3-1,500 sq. ft. green houses) & related land clearing, construction, fencing, seed & fertilizers, 35 pit latrines, 35 showers and two clean drinking water sources.

In 2008 we also completed our first fishing cooperative in Testasse, Haiti.

Testasse is located on the southeastern peninsular tip of Haiti, 140 miles east of Port-au-Prince and 7 miles from Jeremie. It rarely sees any kind of life-sustaining relief and is one of the poorest cities in the poorest country in the world, where poverty is extreme and housing deplorable.

Testasse (along with most of Haiti) has an infant mortality rate of 22% (22% of the children won’t see their 5th birthday), highest death rate from AIDS in the Western Hemisphere (life expectancy of 47 years), a per person/per day income of less than $1 and an 80% unemployment rate.

We felt that the new village would prosper if its core activity and commerce were centered around a fishing cooperative.

When we were able to identify where a small sprinkling of free enterprise might provide for ongoing, life-sustaining capital, we immediately went to work to provide the opportunity in Testasse:

  1. A fishing cooperative building so that the new villagers have a place to receive, clean, process, display, store and sell their fish. The fishing cooperative is the primary mode of commerce that supports the village. With the many new fiberglass boats and motors CHPF provided, the fisherman are able to venture into deeper waters, bring back larger fish then are able to use the building to prepare, freeze and keep the fish fresh via generators. With this new found ability to conduct commerce, the village has a steady stream of income. The fishing cooperative is comprised of a 1,200+/- sq. ft. concrete building to include a grinder room, prep room, freezer room, two storage rooms, an office for the co-op, 6 15-foot fiberglass boats with 15hp motors (including fuel), 2 freezers and 1 generator.
  2. A 4,800 sq. ft., 10-room School w/ 2 administrative offices, furnishings, school supplies, 4 latrines and 1 water well to serve 500 kindergarten – 9th graders.
  3. A 1,000 sq. ft., Health Clinic and Pharmacy/Dispensary, including a water well to treat the many ill children and adults of the village.
  4. 61 Concrete Homes, each accommodating up to 8 family members. Each home has two bedrooms, living area, front porch and latrine for bathing and toilet facilities.
  5. A 1,100 sq. ft., Community Center for communal meals, fellowship, worship and sharing the good word of God.

See what an impact you can make by supporting CHPF today!

In 2009 we finished our 2nd self-sufficient project in Gonavies, Haiti by providing i) 35 double homes, ii) a  schoolhouse with nine classrooms, office for admin and teachers, iii) a community center, iv) 3 sets of fruit trees to each house, v) 35 goats, vi) 24 milking cows, vii) vegetable and Fruit Trees (1,000 mango; 1,000 avocado trees, and 1,000 breadfruit trees).

Also in 2009, in Kalsegra, West Ghana, Africa, we built a school known as “The School of Two Trees” for 300 K-8th graders. We provided a clinic, sustainable farming and necessary farming equipment.

In 2010 we finished our three villages in Terre Rouge, Fond Rouge Torbek and Paroty, Haiti. These three villages totaled 100 homes, and provided shelter to over 800 men, woman and children who had none before.

Also in 2010 three more self-sufficient villages:

  1. Built a new village in Chameau, Haiti (50 houses, 50 latrines, 50 goats, 100 fruit trees, 1 mule).
  2. Built a new village in Mannuel, Haiti (50 houses, 50 latrines, 50 goats, 100 fruit trees, 1 mule.
  3. Built a new village in Mahotiere/Rampa, Haiti (50 houses, 50 latrines, 50 goats, 100 fruit trees, 1 mule.

Please visit our donation page to make your much needed contribution.

In 2011, CHPF accomplished the following (3 more villages + help in the US):

  1. In Paroty, Haiti, created then built a self-sufficient village that contained 50 homes (housing up to 400 people), sanitation facilities, 1 mule and renewable food sources (fruit trees, goats, chickens, pigs, etc).
  2. In Makandal, Haiti, built a smaller self-sufficient village contained 10 larger homes (housing up to 100 people), sanitation facilities, 1 mule and renewable food sources (fruit trees, goats, chickens, pigs, etc).
  3. Provided expedient emergency relief (cholera, earthquake, etc) in Haiti in the form of food and hundreds of bio-sand water filters producing up to 1000 gallons of clean drinking water a day.
  4. Given the economic challenges domestically, CHPF focused some of its efforts here at home as well, with 10-15% of our donors dollars staying here in the U.S.

In 2012, with the help of the Martel Alliance and Hope to Haiti, we built a seaside village in Anse Rouge, Haiti containing:

  1. 40 concrete houses
  2. 20 concrete latrines
  3. 1 2,000 sq. ft. community center and fishing cooperative
  4. 4 15-foot fiberglass boats w/ 4 15hp motors
  5. 1 generator
  6. 2 freezers
  7. And 1 underground fuel storage tank

In 2013, with your help, Caring House Project Foundation completed the following:
