offering hope through home repair

As we look around, we learn there are many opportunities to help our neighbors.  When a home has been damaged, people search for help to return their lives to normal.  Our team focuses on the impoverished, elderly and single parents in our community.  These are opportunities for followers of Jesus to be the presence of Christ as they provide for the needs of those affected.  

Our Build Together Team Leaders provide training, encouragement, and support to volunteers of all ages.  Click "Volunteer" to fill out an interest form.   A Build Together Team Leader will contact you.

OUR DISASTER RELIEF PLAN

Natural disasters occur frequently in our nation and in our world.  Our first response is often, “What should I do?”  
We understand response requires commitment to having developed a plan to guide us as we reach out to those impacted.  
Our Disaster Relief Plan is outlined below.

respond

Pray & Listen
While first responders assess what kinds of responses are needed immediately, we can rise up and be effective prayer warriors for those in the midst of disaster. If available, we can offer specialized responders to partner with local/federal government entities.

Give
 We want to be the best stewards of the finances God gives us. By clicking on the "Give" button, your Disaster Relief donations will be used in the best ways possible to provide relief.

The option to give is always open to everyone—we want to be ready for an immediate financial response in the wake of disaster.

rebuild

Wait
Our natural response is to act now. However, we know immediate, direct involvement isn't always what's needed—sending people and supplies can sometimes do more harm than good and may not be an appropriate response.

Mobilize
In cooperation with our Disaster Relief partners, trained teams may be mobilized for short-term relief trips locally, nationally, or internationally. By clicking the "Volunteer" button, you can learn about disaster relief training.

Give
During this time, collecting and sending items can be overwhelming or unnecessary; in these early stages, cash and gift cards  will meet needs more quickly.  By clicking on the "Give" button, your Disaster Relief donations will be used in the best ways possible to provide relief.

restore

Mobilize
We are positioned to be a long-term presence for helping people and communities rebuild. There are often many small communities who are forgotten or marginalized in the aftermath of a disaster. We will actively seek out those communities and partner with local churches to help recover and rebuild. The ultimate goal is to respond to these disasters by pointing those in need to the hope and love of Jesus Christ.

Give
Ongoing, long-term recovery is a costly endeavor, and the partners we visit will have gone through significant financial and material loss. We encourage those who are able to continue giving so that we're ready to mobilize when needed. By clicking on the "Give" button, your Disaster Relief donations will be used in the best ways possible to provide relief.
