2016 Mission Trip Planning
We're getting ready for the summer of 2016. Return trips to
New Orleans and West Virginia are planned and we're preparing for new locations--the Hurricane Sandy-impacted area near Rockaway, New York and flood-ravaged Columbia, South Carolina.
DreamBuilders has a new online payment method. When you register for a trip, click the link to the online payment portal, where you can make a mission trip deposit, full payment, or final trip payment for one or more missioners. This payment portal accepts e-checks, credit card, and debit card.
New Orleans Mission Trip Dates: May 15-21
Please note: Our 7th annual New Orleans trip is one week earlier "than usual" this year. St Bernard Project, our local building partner, is booked the week we traditionally go. SBP is excited to have us work May 16-20. We will travel to New Orleans on Sunday May 15 and return on Saturday May 21. We will be staying again at the Camp Hope volunteer center in Arabi, LA. We would love to have 20 missioners on this trip!
ARC Red Lake Local Project
We completed a demolition day and a build day at Arc of Howard County's Red Lake project in early winter. This is a renovation of a single family home for three older men with intellectual and developmental disabilities and a live-in house manager. Our work days were a success; we removed sheet rock, insulation, flooring, and outbuilding walls. We started framing to reconfigure the first floor, improving accessibility for the residents. We demolished the carport and accomplished other exterior work on a third workday, before the snow arrived. And, at the end of March, we rebuilt the front fence. Great job, team!
