The mission of House to House is to develop, strengthen and rebuild the homes of Washington Park – both the physical structures and the families who live in them – teaching, mentoring, discipling and sharing our lives with each family we serve. This is happening in a context of other complementary ministries which have made similar long-term commitments to the spiritual, physical, economic, educational, health care and recreational needs of the community. Our major partner ministry is Common Ground Montgomery (www.cgmlife.org) – a ministry that focuses on the children of Washington Park, providing after school activities and a summer camp, among many other things.
House to House (H2H) has several homes under construction continuously. Most homes are extensive renovations but some are new homes. While H2H always hires professional subcontractors to install electrical, plumbing and HVAC improvements, volunteer workers are invited to help with every other part of the construction process. Volunteers are not required to have prior construction experience. Staff and volunteer group leaders will be available to explain how to do the work scheduled for any given day. If a volunteer feels uncomfortable for any reason doing the work scheduled, he or she is provided with something else to do.
All tools, materials and safety equipment is provided for volunteer workers. Each project begins with a description of the work planned and what materials, tools and safety equipment are required.
