Home Repair & Construction

Most of us can't relate to the stress of watching the ceiling swell and sag with water, needing five or six pails to catch the drips every time it rains. We don't know what it's like to have the bathtub collapse through the floor during a bath. This is the reality of many of our families that don't have the skills or can't afford expensive repairs to maintain their homes.

Each year more than 15 churches and college groups partner with Heart and Hand to improve the housing of low income folks in Barbour County. Volunteers help with bedroom additions, roof repair, insulation, wheelchair ramps and many other repairs, as well as the construction of one or two new homes.

Groups are housed in churches, camps and schools while they spend the week working with the home owner. Volunteer groups raise support locally to purchase materials and supplies for their work project.

Many volunteers come to give and find themselves the recipient. Just one of God's mysteries!
