GREETINGS FROM WEST VIRGINIA!
Welcome to the WVMAW website!
Since October 2001, we have brought 40-80 volunteer groups per year to work in West Virginia. Their work has consisted of home repair and reconstruction, deconstruction, playground restoration, parks cleanup, stream bank stabilization, and vacation Bible schools, among other things.
We are supported in part by Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, The Synod of the Trinity and The Presbytery of West Virginia, as well as other churches and individual donations. The groups we recruit come from churches of various faith traditions, as well as from colleges and universities. Come and join the family!
Our housing locations around WV are all associated with local churches, and each has shower facilities and fully-equipped kitchens. Often, there is interaction with the local congregations, including worship, Bible Schools, conversations and cookouts.
The cost for week-long mission experiences is $250/person. For trips shorter than a week, the cost is $63.50/person per WORKING day (based on four working days). Your fees help us defray the cost of building materials. As you plan your mission, you will need to figure in the cost of food and transportation.
You also have a day off to enjoy beautiful West Virginia, where you may decide to go whitewater rafting, visit an exhibition coal mine, go to an outdoor theater, visit one of our State Parks or just hang out in the neighborhood!
