SWC Help Build Hope

Help Build Hope (May 11-12, 2018)

The demand for safe, affordable housing is enormous. In the United States, almost two million people live with a hole in their roof, 3.7 million live with broken windows and 2.5 million live in a house where the foundation is crumbling beneath them. Just over one million people live without complete plumbing facilities. 

Help Build Hope projects assist families living in substandard housing like those described above. Help Build Hope partners with host businesses and partnering organizations like Habitat for Humanity or The Fuller Center for Housing.  Through Help Build Hope projects, we assist partnering organizations to eliminate poverty housing.

On May 11-12, Southwest Church is partnering with Crossroads Missions for a Help Build Hope event to be held in Southwest’s parking lot. Southwest will be taking part in a 2 home build—both will be going to families in Ohio.

We are after 200 volunteers to make this event happen!

There will be opportunities to serve on both Friday, May 11th and Saturday, May 12th although the majority of help is needed on May 12th. Friday is the prep day while Saturday is the build day.

On Friday, we need 25-30 volunteers to pre-cut and organize the lumber for Saturday’s build. Four of these people need to know how to use a mitre saw while the remainder will be lumber carriers.

On Saturday, we need roughly 200 volunteers of all ages who will have a wide range of jobs including nail-gunners, wall carriers, hammer-and-nail workers, etc. It’ll be a lot of fun!

The most crucial need for the success of this event will be Crew Leaders. We need 30 Crew Leaders who will each be over a building station. These Crew Leaders should be able to read a simple blueprint, use a hammer and measuring tape, and be able to instruct others. Crew Leaders must attend a meeting on Friday (May 11) evening from 6:00-7:00pm.

The cost of participation in this event is $10 per person, which helps cover the cost of the building materials. Each participant will also receive a free event T-shirt.
