Building Hope One Project at a Time
SUPPORTING DISADVANTAGED AND ELDERLY HOMEOWNERS IN OUR COMMUNITY
HOPE BUILDERS HELP FIX, REPAIR, AND IMPROVE HOMES ONE PROJECT AT A TIME.
Founded in 2004, Hope Builders is a partnership between South Side Mission and the Metro Peoria Baptist Association. By partnering with volunteers, churches, and area businesses, Hope Builders is able to coordinate the repairs to, and renovation of, many homes owned by the economically disadvantaged and elderly in the 61605 zip code.
Hope Builders has grown over the years to include partnerships with churches outside of the Baptist Association, outside the region, and even out of state. Growing from one focus week initially, to now completing projects April through October, each year Hope Builders completes many home projects with the help of volunteers, financial contributions, and material donations. Homeowners apply for a specific repair project to their home. Then we work with our volunteers and supply partners to make sure that we have the materials, skills, and time to make the needed repairs. If you have construction skills and time and interest and want to get involved, we would love to hear from you! Please contact Pastor Frank Winfrey at (309) 676-4604 to learn more!
