SOS exists to glorify God by proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ in underserved neighborhoods through home repair and leadership development.
What We Do
SOS provides opportunities for the Church to engage in ministry among people living in underserved neighborhoods.
SOS provides leadership development opportunities for youth and critical home repairs for homeowners in our partner neighborhoods.
SOS trains and equips servant leaders to care for those who are marginalized.
How We Do It
SOS hosts spring and summer home repair service camps for college, middle school, and high school students.
SOS facilitates summer ministry internships for college-age young adults as well as a nine-month community development residency for young adults.
Through several youth empowerment initiatives, SOS serves as a platform for developing leaders, both from within our partner neighborhoods and beyond.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ - the reality that Jesus came to reconcile all things to himself - is the end goal and motivation in all we do.
We believe all people are created in the image of God and therefore have value and are called to exercise dominion over creation.
We believe all people need each other – rich and poor alike.
We are committed to never doing for others what they have the capacity to do for themselves.
In our work we pursue a neighborhood-based approach through partnerships and proximity.
Our team of ten full-time staff members call SOS home year-round. Between camp construction and programming, registration and SOS Builds, this is the team that’s got it covered!
