It is with regret that Lend A Hand has decided to raise the minimum age limit for volunteers to 18. This is due to the new Keep Kids Safe initiative in Pa., that would requires all volunteers that might be in a group with someone under the age of 18 to get clearance which would add cost and time to the application process.
Lend A Hand was founded in 1989 following Hurricane Hugo in South Carolina, and has since achieved national respect and recognition.
Lend A Hand coordinates reliable transportation, labor, housing and meals for volunteers who want to help those who have lost homes or are suffering extraordinary hardship as the result of a disaster.
Often one of the most valuable things Lend A Hand volunteers can do is to listen. Victims of disaster need to tell their stories of loss, hardship and recovery to a sympathetic listener.
The new friends you make with other volunteers and with those you’re serving are just one of the many benefits of participating on a Lend A Hand work team.
Many (but not all) jobs require physical labor. Most volunteers eagerly jump in and take on any job which needs to be done, from demolition and rebuilding to general disaster clean-up.

RESTORING HOMES AND RENEWING LIVES ARE AT THE CORE OF OUR EFFORTS. Moreover, such trips enrich our volunteers as they continue on their individual ‘spiritual/faith journeys’ of doing God’s work among those affected by disaster. Your financial support makes our efforts possible. You are invited to join with us on future trips. View our website for dates and trip details.

useful, but there’s a job
“There are people in
trouble and I can help”
“The week I spent working
as a Lend A Hand volunteer made a hugh difference in
peoples’ lives… especially mine.”
