Puerto Rico
May Trip - Uptown Only

5/23/2020 - 5/30/2020

Experience the fullness that comes from helping communities rebuild their homes and their lives. The joy and warmth of those that live in Puerto Rico will inspire and encourage you as you see what teamwork and community can accomplish in a week’s time. Whether it’s cleaning debris, building the frame for a new house, or building relationships with the people in the community, the work you complete during your week will help lay the foundation for the work God is doing on that island. While you’re there, be sure to take in the amazing views of the mountains, beaches, and historical landmarks that make Puerto Rico a place to love.

Hunger Corp

Hunger Corp has proven to be an amazing organization. Hunger has a bold vision in Puerto Rico and all over the Americas they work to move a generation towards service work. Their love for their neighbors is what fuels their work and is contagious to those that partner with them. By working with Hunger, you’ll find yourself working in a small community in Puerto Rico called “La Hormiga.” Work could look like building a house from scratch, to taking down parts damaged by hurricanes and building them to code. Hunger is focused on putting as much effort into the details of the projects they work on, as in the people they build into. Their model is one that is changing the way Christian organizations work in Puerto Rico and beyond, for the better.
