SERVE

Providing deep meaningful opportunities for volunteers to enrich the lives of the Treasures as well as their own. After the experience of serving the Treasures you will gain a very personal appreciation of the many types of poverty and a love for the people who are afflicted by them.

SEE CHANGE. BE CHANGED.

Potter’s House has been working with volunteers for over three decades and it has been an incredible blessing! At Potter’s House we strive to make missions trips a life-changing experience for all participants: the churches that send volunteers and gifts, the volunteers who come to serve, the people working at Potter’s House, and of course the Treasures. We offer the following mission trips:

GROUP

Intended for churches or organizations that want to expose individuals to the eye-opening experience of serving the poor. Participants will experience first-hand what God is doing in the dump community.

YOUTH

This option gives your youth group an opportunity to participate in the adventure of serving the poor in a exciting and exotic place. It is a great way to help strengthen young adults’ faith and character and change their perspective on life.

FAMILY

Through this experience you can strengthen the relationships with your family members as you serve together in a Christian organization. Every member of the family can use their talents and abilities to share God’s love to the poor.

INDIVIDUAL

This is the chance for individuals to work side by side with the Potter’s House staff in daily activities. From short term volunteer opportunities to internships to long-term mission, individuals will have the opportunity to use their skills and experience to enhance our programs.
