Summer Mission Trips
N'awlins, West Virginia, and the Jersey Shore
We kicked off the season In May, with a team of missioners partnering with the St. Bernard Project (SBP) to help rebuild a home in New Orleans. SBP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping disaster-impacted communities recover promptly and efficiently. This trip marked the 8th time we worked with SBP, helping Hurricane Katrina Survivors and Opportunity Housing clients rebuild properties. In June, we launched two mission trips on the same day at the same time to projects in two locations! One group headed north to New Jersey to work with Sea Bright Rising (another SBP affiliate) to repair and rebuild homes hit by Hurricane Sandy. A second group caravan-ed south to West Virginia for a blitz build with Almost Heaven - Habitat for Humanity. A parade of vehicles departing from the temple parking lot made quite the send-off. But that's not all...we repeated history in August, when yet another group of missioners traveled to White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia for a follow-on build at the same residence to continue progress on door trimming, painting, and exterior finishing.

Baltimore House Furnishings
Several years of work on the Baltimore Project is coming to a successful close, and we are in our last push to complete the house! Since her house was destroyed by fire, our home owner has been looking forward to the day she can move back in, and she is getting very excited. As we get close to completing the house, we look to furnishing the house as well. Each DreamBuilders parish is 'adopting' a room to furnish. If you would like to help, look for details from your parish DreamBuilders representatives. If you are not associated with a particular parish but would like to help, you can donate to DreamBuilders or contact us for more information.
from TI Men's Club and Sisterhood.
DreamBuilders is grateful for the support each of our member congregations provide throughout the year. The 2015 Matzohball 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run was a successful community event, benefitting DreamBuilders and other local causes. In August, Temple Isaiah Men's Club and Sisterhood presented a check for $5000 to the Leadership Team. These funds raised will help defray costs of local work projects in Maryland.
