Well friends, another year has past and as we begin 2009, we would like to share the upcoming VFC trip for this big year. In October we will be undertaking one of our biggest projects yet. Vision for Chile we will be building the House of Hope. The House of Hope is a halfway house project for the young women who must leave the orphanage when they reach 18 years of age. Even growing up in the nurturing atmosphere of the VFC orphanage, the girls become very anxious about reaching adulthood, knowing that their security is at risk when they return to the streets. Because the orphanage cannot keep them when they reach age 18, a safe home is needed for them as they adjust to the pressures of adulthood. The House of Hope will be this safe place. This is a very important project and largest to date. We are going to need three large teams of 40 people or more.
Team 1 – Saturday October 3rd through Sunday, October 18th
Team 2 – Saturday October 17th through Sunday, November 1st
Team 3 – Saturday October 31st through Sunday, November 15th
The only requirement for joining us is that you love the Lord and love people! Everyone of any construction skill level is welcome! However, we can always use plumbers, electricians and carpenters. The approximate cost of this amazing experience will be $3000. If you are interested, please complete an application and liability form by clicking on the “How do I go?” link at the top of this website. Then please send them to Vision for Chile, along with your non refundable deposit of $250 before April 15th. If you have any questions, please contact VFC Director Tom Orme.
