Author: Tracie Bjorkgren/Wednesday, December 07, 2016/Categories: DR News



Texas Baptist Men Long Term Recovery has set their 2017 mission trip dates.  Volunteers areneeded to repair homes in Texas and Louisiana.  TBM Disaster Relief is widely known for successful immediate relief efforts, assisting hundreds of individuals and families affected by disasters in the days and weeks just after a disaster strikes.  TBM Long Term Recovery efforts begin as immediate relief efforts conclude.
 

Long Term Recovery seeks to serve individuals and families who are uninsured, disabled and elderly, working with disaster survivors throughout the long term restoration process by partnering with local churches, associations and other recovery teams, to mobilize volunteers, gather and transport donated items, provide prayer and spiritual support and raise awareness of specific needs. 

Currently volunteers are needed to help repair homes in the Greater Houston, Southeast Texas and Jennings, LA areas.  These volunteer opportunities are for Church Youth/Adults Groups, Baptist Student Missions Groups as well as Yellow Cap Trained individuals.   Volunteers 18 and up, who stay overnight, must have a current background check on file. Yellow Cap training is not required for long term recovery work.  Volunteers must be at least age 12.  

Spring Break and summer trips cost $175 per person for food and lodging.  Work projects could involve hanging sheetrock, installing tile, doors, trim, plumbing, roofing, debris removal, mold remediation, yard work and more.  Long Term Recovery seeks to insure a meaningful and productive experience for volunteers.
