In September of 2017, Hurricane Maria devastated the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Killing over 2,975 people, it was the deadliest natural disaster in 100 years to affect the United States and its territories. Over the next few years, Puerto Rico was further impacted by a series of earthquakes and the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are partnering with Hunger Corp—a local organization helping those who are most vulnerable after this series of disasters. Many in rural areas have not only lost their homes, but they have no way of getting government funding since they did not have an official home title. Through short-term mission trips, we are showing the love of Christ and serving communities by rebuilding homes, restoring businesses, and working to bring dignity and sustainability to those who live there.
Hunger Corp is a nonprofit organization with social aid projects in the Amazon, Honduras, Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico. They help communities flourish through home construction, small business development, and more.
You can consider joining a Grace mission trip to Puerto Rico and invest a week of your life in serving others. Our teams are involved in building relational equity through holistic ministry, including economic development, construction efforts, and other opportunities identified by our in-country partners.
Short-term teams serve in communities to help rebuild homes and restore small businesses, while growing in understanding God’s heart for the world. Scroll down to the next section to see dates and apply for an upcoming trip.
