Homes of Hope Build
with Covenant UMC
Our 2016 Christmas Eve offering of $41,000 was given to Homes of Hope to fund the building of an affordable, energy efficient, high quality home for a low income family while also supporting the Men’s Development program at Homes of Hope. In the one year residential men’s development program, men (who have already completed a Christian based recovery program) are provided specialized construction job training, Christian discipleship, mentoring, life skills and financial wellness training. At the end of the 12-month program, interns receive an Education Curriculum certificate which along with on-the-job training earns them a Basic Residential Construction certificate from Greenville Tech. These certifications open the door for apprentice opportunities with local contractors.
Homes of Hope has invited us to work along side the men’s development interns to help with the building of this home. No previous experience is required. Help is also needed to coordinate lunch for the interns and volunteers on a select number of workdays (Fluor Corp will arrange lunch for some of the workdays).
Please sign up by clicking below to let us know if you can participate on the project. You should plan to work the entire shift. Volunteers must be 16 years or older (Family landscape day is the exception).
