Reframe Titetown is back with a mission to repair more than 55 homes in just one week in Greater Green Bay. Organizers are looking for disabled, elderly, and low to moderate income homeowners to help free of charge.
Now in its third year, NeighborWorks Green Bay and Trinity Lutheran Church will again be partnering to provide free home maintenance and repair activities to people in need during the week of June 23-29, 2019.
“A variety of local churches had been sending their youth to do service trips around the country through Group Cares, a Home Repair Youth Mission Trip Program that operates throughout the U.S. and internationally. They saw a local need for these services, though, and decided to host one of these programs here locally,” Allison Hellenbrand with NeighborWorks Green Bay said.
Reframe Titletown 2018 was held here last summer. During the week, 341 youth, their chaperones, and leaders from Group Mission Trips worked on 55 homes. Crews consisted of five teens and one adult totaling over 11,000 volunteer hours.
“This program is equally for the youth that participate in the home repair and the homeowners that they are doing the repair activities for during the week. During the course of the week, we are seeing multigenerational relationships forming due the impact of the program,” Hellenbrand said.
