Looking forward to 2024...

Northern Vermont

Flood Recovery

Well, here we are.  I guess it wasn't cool enough for us in the Catskills of NY, so here we are in the "Northeast Kingdom" of Vermont :-)

As we shared previously, this deployment is a little different.  The local Long Term Recovery Group (KURRVE) has made a great start, but with UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) we are actually helping to get rebuild case management and construction assessments up and going.   There is an incredible amount of work that goes on behind the scene before volunteers can come to do the work of repairing and rebuilding homes.

That said, UMCOR is starting to fill the volunteer calendar for the summer and fall.

Volunteer Housing has been set up at Covenant Hills in Cabot, VT (not far from the famous cheese maker).  It is a Methodist summer camp with sleeping cabins, bath house, dining hall, pond, and a beautiful view!

Another great winter at Huntersfield Christian Training Center 2024 working with the men in the Discover Life recovery program!

If you recall..last year in Prattsville, NY we spent a lot of time on the house downtown that will become transitional living for men from the Discover Life program.   While we were working on tornado homes in Dawson Springs last summer, volunteer groups finished up the back apartment and it is now home to new staff members Ryan and Alex.   This Winter, with the men's help, we focused on firewood and building sheds to help build up funds to complete the doors, trim and cabinets for the front house.   Along with the various other chores and activities at Huntersfield, It was a busy and productive Winter season!

With so much work to do, now more than ever...


The Call to Build needs your support!
There are so many families displaced from their homes and in need of help to get them restored.
We are doing all we can, but would love to build the capacity to do more!


If you aren't already, please consider becoming a monthly contributor.

We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.

ABOUT US

Tim and Marcy Sheaffer are disaster repair and rebuild mission workers.

 

They are... Called To Build.

Many generous organizations offer immediate emergency services to those hit by disasters. Because of these services families are provided with relief from the immediate threat of homelessness. 

However, within months it is not uncommon for a community to be left wondering what's next. After the immediate needs are met, they still need a home.

 

During this time some families fall between the cracks. Tim and Marcy offer re-build services to disaster affected communities with vulnerable populations. Through this work they have witnessed lives transformed.

Here's What People Are Saying:

 

"Tim, Marcy, Alan, Rusty and the whole youth group crew from NJ were absolutely wonderful! I could not have asked for a nicer, hard working crew! My new roof is on and it has just started pouring out as we speak. I am not worried and my stress level has decreased dramatically! Not only did they finish my roof but also my front and back deck and part of my side deck. Rusty said they needed to finish some work on another job but would be back in the next few weeks or so to complete my side porch and the inside work. I feel so incredibly blessed, I cannot even tell you!

Tim & Marcy, please know there is not enough words to express my satisfaction and privilege to know how much I appreciated your work on my  home and the truly spiritual connection resulting from what I know came from God.   Below is my attempt to let you know:

 

THE CALL TO BUILD restored my home outside and inside walls, floors, ceiling, roof, electric and water access in practically every room after the Memorial day tornado and a failed contractor job.   Through Tim's disaster recovery experience and natural hands-on professional guidance, willingness to identify the required code requirements and why step-by-step, and also to complete each task provided trusting and more than satisfying results.."

"In October 2015 the South Carolinas experienced record-breaking rainfall as 11 trillion gallons of water fell during a three-day period. In Columbia, rivers overflowed, more than 20 dams – including the historic Columbia Canal – breached, and water filled thousands of homes and businesses across the area. Tim Sheaffer was among the first groups to arrive to provide immediate relief and help to begin the process of long-term recovery. Tim showed deep compassion for helping people and allowed many in our community to return home."

"After the devastation of Hurricane Matthew in 2015 we were blessed to host Tim and Marcy Sheaffer and the volunteers who began the work of repairing homes for those who were in need.   They came with knowledge, experience, equipment and a passion to serve."

"Tim Sheaffer oversaw our entire disaster relief project that consisted of six new residential homes.   The homes were built for families in Ocean County, New Jersey following the devastation of Super Storm Sandy.   Tim was exceptional.    He was on time, reliable,  hardworking and professional at all times.   We would highly recommend him for any disaster relief projects."

Sincerely,
