ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS
Our missions go beyond the act of labor to support those in need, we offer mercy. Each project is unique, and we combine our work efforts with corporal and spiritual works of mercy. A project may include the painting of a damaged church or home with visiting the sick or feeding the homeless. They "are charitable actions by which we help our neighbors in their bodily needs" (USCCA). They respond to the basic needs of humanity as we journey together through this life.
Rebuilding Hope coordinates host facilities, work sites, transportation, translation, and other details so that your team can focus on making the biggest impact possible.
Projects vary from debris cleanup, mending fences, light building repairs, painting, roof repair, concrete work, among other tasks. In addition, work will also include acts of mercy such as feeding the homeless, volunteering at the social justice center and visiting the sick to name a few.
Rebuilding Hope will do its best to design a project that best reflects the passions of the group, however, God’s work requires flexibility and patience as demands may shift and plans change to support those in need. Once our project coordinators develop a plan of action and provide a quote, the retreat group is responsible for helping support the cost of the project and costs associated with the retreat itself such as accommodations, ground transportation, excursions, and food.
Minimum group size: 8
Maximum Group Size: 25
Groups come from all backgrounds. We are happy to accommodate college groups, families, father/son, mother/daughter, church groups, civic, and social groups. All minors participating in a service retreat must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Typically, groups will be located at a retreat house or convent where meals and spiritual opportunities will be provided. Transportation is provided to and from the airport, worksite, and accommodations. Please note that these are mission trips, therefore accommodations are typical for the region and not a resort. We must remember that the Church is a field hospital and not a five star hotel.
