Puerto Rico: Hurricane Recovery and Rebuild

Respond to the urgent needs of Puerto Rico!

In the aftermath of hurricanes Irma and Maria, the people of Puerto Rico are in need of partners to help their communities recover while sharing the hope of Christ.

Volunteers are needed for cleanup following the storm and helping families and churches in the process of rebuilding.

Once onsite, you will be led by a crew chief. Trained leaders are providing leadership to direct what needs to happen, where you will go and what you will be doing.You will be doing hard work. There’s nothing easy about responding to situations like this. The terrain is unsteady. You might be lifting or carrying heavy loads. The work will be dirty. We will make sure that the work you’re doing is safe and that you’re protected for the situations to which you are assigned.
