Christian Outreach Project Offers Home Repairs for Those in Need

Do you know someone struggling to get some home repairs done?

For one week each summer, 
the Christian Outreach Project sends groups to houses in local communities of Northwest New Jersey (Morris, Sussex, and Warren Counties) to provide housing repairs to homeowners who are unable to handle the projects themselves. 

How are work sites selected? Homeowners and work sites are chosen by a committee based on need for repairs, ability of the homeowner to perform the repairs themselves, and the capabilities of the work crews. If you are a homeowner who would like to request a crew during the summer, contact us.

The work week for COP 2016 is June 27-July 1. The cost for participants will be $385, and this money goes to help offset costs, as well as to help pay for the supplies necessary to complete the projects undertaken.

In 2015, 14 homes were repaired by 83 youth and adult participants from 10 participating churchesSome examples of jobs that have been undertaken in years past include:
  • Interior/Exterior house painting
  • Wheelchair ramp construction
  • Porch and step repair
  • Insulation/weatherization installation
  • Gutter replacement
  • Window replacement/reglazing
  • Masonry repair
  • Handrail installation
  • Roof repair
  • Tiling
  • Sheet rocking

The COP is a non-profit organization, part of the Greater New Jersey Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.
