Group Mission Trips has been working with and helping communities across the United States and the world since the early 1990s. As the non-profit mission ministry of Group Cares, we work hard to bring meaningful service to the communities we serve. Since our beginning, thousands upon thousands of mission trip participants have racked up millions of volunteer hours serving people in need.
For the past 10 years, we’ve partnered with the city municipalities of Cayey, Salinas, and many others, sending thousands of people to help elderly and disabled people with home repair and maintenance. We’ll keep partnering with these cities to bring much-needed supplies and recovery in 2018 and beyond. We ask for your continued prayers and support.
