Some of the materials needed were visible in the lay-down yard of the church’s parking lot.

U.M. ARMY youth and adults work together on small construction projects such as porches, stairs and handicap access ramps. Teams also do a variety of home maintenance such as handrails, yard work, painting, repair of leaky roofs, windows and doors.

Several teams are shown creating porches that were needed.

and adults to experience Christian growth through service to others.

Participants combine their strengths and resources to meet home repair and maintenance needs for low-income, elderly and disabled homeowners who are physically or financially unable to make needed repairs themselves.

Because we view our hosts as partners in mission, our outreach is your outreach.

Communities are transformed as we work together.
