World Changers Volunteer in Lubbock

A group is in Lubbock this week with a mission to refurbish homes in Lubbock. World Changers is similar to Habitat for Humanity but instead of building new homes for low-income families, they bring in volunteers from Baptist churches across the country.

The volunteers help the city eliminate substandard housing already in the community. 265 people from eight states are in Lubbock to help paint and repair roofs on homes of people who qualify. Kristen Berryhill is a volunteer with World Changers. She says, "They will be working on houses all over Lubbock and they will be working until Friday and they will leave Lubbock on Saturday."

Since 1991, World Changers has mobilized over 70,000 volunteers and repaired more than 5,000 homes around the country.
