Athens, Ohio 

Serving with Good Works, Inc. The vision of Good Works is to create a “community of hope” with and for people who are struggling with poverty and homelessness in rural Appalachia. As a Christian community, they are seeking to grow in love for God and neighbor. They offer contexts through which people in need can experience biblical hospitality, access practical assistance, and share their gifts with others. In doing so, they facilitate ways for people from all walks of life to build relationships of love and service with their neighbors. Good Works exists to connect people from all walks of life with people in poverty so that the kingdom of God can be experienced.
Good Works engages in a number of projects in the community. They run a homeless shelter, a resource center for people struggling with poverty, long term transitional housing for single adults moving toward independence and self-sufficiency, community meals for the homeless and rural poor, a home repair program for seniors and people with disabilities, summer programing and lunches for children in poverty, and more. Our mission team will have the opportunity to assist with many of these diverse programs.
