Friends & Family

Many of the volunteers who organize trips under the Friends & Family banner have traveled with us in the past as a business professional, members of a faith-based organization, a college trip or even a medical brigade.

Our Friends & Family trips are exactly as the name suggests, one family possibly joins another family and then invites a few friends to spend a week working side by side, for the benefit of others in desperate need of shelter. For these trips, parents can bring children younger than 15, making these trips truly a “family affair.”

Our Friends & Family trips, working with a minimum group size of 10 volunteers, often look to volunteers traveling independently to fill out their ranks. Friends & Family trips that are open to the public all have a core group of dedicated volunteers who are interested in having like-minded individuals join them.
