Rebuilding, Restoring, Renewing...
Puerto Rico



Continuing Dates through 2018
Puerto Rico

Join ABHMS and the Iglesias Bautistas de Puerto Rico region in hands-on work to restore Seminario Evangélico de Puerto, churches, schools, missions and ABHMS Christian center partner Corporación Milagros del Amor. Because the need in hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico is so great, ABHMS is not limiting its volunteer-mobilization efforts to predetermined work weeks on the island. To register to volunteer, complete the “Rebuilding, Restoring, Renewing Puerto Rico” online registration packet, indicating your preferred volunteer work week, beginning March 1 or later. Then either email it to Kim Wilkins at, or print it and send it by postal mail to American Baptist Home Mission Societies, Attention: Kim Wilkins, P.O. Box 851, Valley Forge, PA, 19482-0851. Or contact ABHMS’ Victoria Goff at 800-222-3872, x2449, or Kim Wilkins at 800-222-3872, x2413. Volunteers can create their own work group or be placed with a group.

Cost of $150 per person per week includes housing, food and supplies. Volunteers are responsible for transportation to, on, and from the island. 

For additional information and a complete list of volunteer opportunities, please contact Victoria Goff, ABHMS national coordinator of Volunteer Mobilization Ministries, at or 1-800-ABC-3USA, x2449.
