Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Christianity, Home Improvement & Repairs, Homeless & Housing, Religion, Youth Development - Religious Leadership

Mission: workcampNE seeks to provide an environment that helps foster the growth of students' relationship with Christ through community service opportunities. We celebrate each evening with a worship service and hear a lesson that ties in our day's work with the message of the gospel. Our service is to provide home repairs to those who cannot afford to do so themselves, are elderly or physically unable. Through the use of community service we are able to demonstrate and make "real" the gospel message and impress upon our need as Christians to "do" rather than "be." Our service to the community is to provide home repairs to those who either cannot afford to do so themselves, are elderly or physically unable. We provide all the materials and labor and there is no cost for the resident. This is a service to families, single parents, and individuals. Jr. High and High School students come from all over the country (mostly the northeast) and pay a tuition to attend. Much of the tuition is then used to pay for the materials. The students provide the labor.

Programs: worship and devotions for the students and no cost home repairs to the community we serve. We will work on the homes of the under-resourced, elderly and the physically unable, providing the labor and materials at not cost to the residents.

Client Served

Rating: 5

I am a social worker working with seniors. Most of my clients are very low income and come with a variety of needs. When I first heard of Workcamp I was not sure what to expect. I worried that my clients would get their hopes up only to be dashed down again when monies ran out or volunteers did not do the work promised. My clients and I were thrilled to find the exact opposite! The Workcamp volunteers were so hardworking and gracious. Several of my clients benefited from the work they did and I heard nothing but high praise for their commitment to finish the jobs they started and with how polite and considerate they were to the needs of each client. I want to thank all of them for their dedication to helping those less fortunate.
