Sampling of ABHMS Volunteer Mobilization Ministries opportunities
Volunteer to help rebuild, restore, renew and bring God’s healing love to families and communities across the United States mainland and Puerto Rico
Rebuilding, Restoring, Renewing Puerto Rico: Choose your own work week, March 1 or after
Join American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS) and Iglesias Bautistas de Puerto Rico for ongoing volunteer service, as we seek to rebuild, restore and renew the hurricanes Maria- and Irma-ravaged island. Your gifts of time, energy and hands-on work are greatly appreciated in restoring Seminario Evangélico de Puerto, churches, houses, schools, missions and ABHMS Christian center partner Corporación Milagros del Amor.
Because the need is so great, ABHMS is not limiting its volunteer-mobilization efforts to specific work weeks on the island. To register to volunteer, complete the “Rebuilding, Restoring, Renewing Puerto Rico” online registration packet, indicating your preferred volunteer work week. If you prefer, you can print the registration packet and either email it to Kim Wilkins at [email protected], or print it and send it by postal mail to American Baptist Home Mission Societies, Attention: Kim Wilkins, 1075 First Ave., King of Prussia, PA 19406. Or contact ABHMS’ Abigail Medina at 939-231-0120 or Kim Wilkins at 888-79-ABHMS.
Volunteers can create their own work groups or be placed with a group. Cost of $150 per person per week includes housing, food and supplies. Volunteers are responsible for transportation to, on and from the island (online form click here; registration packet click here; flier click here).
Neither construction skills nor training is required. For additional information and a complete list of volunteer opportunities, please contact Victoria Goff, ABHMS’ national coordinator, Volunteer Mobilization Ministries, at [email protected] or 888-79-ABHMS.
