To make homes warmer, safer, drier, and healthier for qualified homeowners as an expression of our faith in Jesus Christ; so that both "helped" and "helpers" become more of what God created them to be.
Who We Are:
More Than Carpenters (MTC) is an inter-denominational partnership of churches that provides basic home repairs and maintenance to qualified homeowners. We serve the elderly, single parents and the physically and financially challenged in our local communities. MTC is not an emergency repair service nor a group that can accept projects with tight deadlines. MTC is not an emergency repair service nor a group that can accept projects with tight deadlines. MTC is a network of over 80 skilled, semi-skilled and general labor servants that accepts and schedules projects based on the availability of our servants and the skill levels required. All of our MTC servants freely give up their time and abilities to these projects for those in need.
As we interact with those in need, we form relationships through what we call, "Homeowner Allies." Through God's love, in humility, the Homeowner Ally stands beside the family with open eyes and ears and a tender heart, serving as bridge between "helped" and "helpers".
More Than Carpenters utilizes the Homeowner Ally as a liaison between the families we serve and the volunteers who serve them. The Ally's role is to build a relationship with the homeowner by purposefully listening for areas of need in order to provide information on available community resources that may benefit the family unit. The Ally will also be watching for opportunities to share God's love in a tender spirit of compassion and respect.
The Need / Our Campaign
Over the past four years, More Than Carpenters have assessed over 40 different homeowners through our home repair and maintenance projects. Unfortunately, we have had to decline many more projects because there were no funds available to purchase materials. We know we can do better if we were able to buy the necessary materials to repair the home and property. This is where the More Than Carpenters GiveSendGo campaign comes in. Our campaign donations will provide the necessary funding for the purchase of construction materials for those homeowners who are not financially capable of providing the funds. You can help us help others!
Please keep in mind, our organization provides a hand up and not a hand out. Our goal is to partner with our Homeowner Allies to create an environment where the homeowner and the community mutually support each other as they exercise their strengths to build a better neighborhood.
