Our volunteers help us bring God’s hope and love directly to those in need — in their compassion, they help others rebuild their homes, and their lives. Our powerful volunteers come from all 50 states and 11 countries around the world, and because of them, we’ve completed over 55 million dollars of work — all for free. They have truly proven that even in the depths of despair, God’s light will always shine through.
If you feel called by God to share the hope and love of Christ with those whose lives have been devastated by a disaster, we invite you to join our amazing team of over 41,000 volunteers that we’ve built over the years. All you need is a heart willing to serve — and you’ll get a chance to meet and work with thousands of other believers driven to serve God’s people.
The best part of my four-month vacation was the two weeks spent working with Eight Days of Hope in Houston. It changed my life and redefined love.

Serving with Eight Days of Hope has changed the way that I view brokenness. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we are able to come into seemingly hopeless situations and rebuild them for the glory of God...and by His grace, what is rebuilt becomes even more beautiful than it was before it was broken. This is the love of Jesus shown in a practical way, and it is powerful to be a part of.

I heard about Eight Days of Hope just over a year ago. And since day one, I knew I found my niche. Not only do I get to do construction with a purpose, but I get to do it alongside godly people who want to serve God and help others!

This was the first mission trip for my husband and me. We were overwhelmed seeing over 3,000 volunteers under one roof, brought together for one reason, to show God's love. The homeowners and the people of Tupelo were so very welcoming. It was amazing to see how smoothly everything went. There was no downtime or wondering what to do next. Eight Days of Hope is wonderfully organized.

To me, Eight Days of Hope is about the recharging of my spirit and faith. You go on the trip to serve someone in need and end up being blessed yourself. While serving, you walk so close to Christ that you return home from the trip so spiritually charged that you are compelled to tell everyone about the experience. Then you count down the days until the next Eight Days of Hope trip.

I was able to introduce my youngest son Weston, to being the church instead of simply going to church. That was his first mission trip and he loved it! His second trip is in two weeks to Peru.

I had the best time serving with Eight Days of Hope! I felt like I was closer to Heaven worshiping with 3,000 people every day, serving others in His name and for His glory!
