VILLAGE MOUNTAIN MISSION

Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

"The Village" Mountain Mission in Luperon, Dominican Republic is a non-profit dedicated to providing assistance for families living in extreme poverty. It hosts American-based high school, college, church and town groups and organizations for eight-day missions, mostly during the summer and alternative Spring breaks. With all of our Missions, we strive not only to meet a physical need, but also foster the bond that develops between the family and participants. The families will live in their new house for years, improving their quality of life, but the long lasting impact for the homeowner, the participants, and the community is the relationship they develop.

 

The Mission has three main branches of service - construction (houses and schools), education (pre-K-5th grade), and health and wellness.

 

The Village is excited to begin the development of a 16-acre parcel of land, with the goal of clearing an access road, building a kitchen and shelter, and digging a well.
