Solid Rock Carpenters is a group of volunteers, now more than 3,000 participants strong, who come together to help provide shelter for people in need.

Young and old, male and female, novice and skilled, first timers and experienced have all participated in construction and rebuilding projects in the Gulf Coast region since Katrina, Chicagoland and Joplin, MO. 

2013 was certainly another productive year for SRC. Our travels took us to Joplin, MO both in March and November.  There we assisted in restoration and new building efforts from the devistating tornados in that area.   
Over the holidays we returned to help our friends in New Orleans and we had a group of 40 travel internationally to build two new homes for needy families in San Raimundo, Guatemala!!   

Last year was a very exciting year indeed.  155 SRC volunteers worked together to bring our mission of - Building Homes and Bringing Hope - to life.  We look forward to helping our friends near and far in 2014!

Hit by Tornado on November 17, 2013 - Tragically 6 lives lost and miles of destruction.

Many of our eager volunteers are asking about the needs in Washington Illinois and if SRC will be assisting in these rebuilding efforts.  Due to the number of insured victims, the need for building services is limited.  However, there is a great need in debris clean up and below is information on how you can assist in these efforts.
Debri clean up efforts are continual and available every Friday and Satruday March - July.  For more information email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  or visit their web site:




Solid Rock Carpenters would have difficulty meeting is mission of assisting in the provision of affordable housing  if it  weren't for our generous donors.   SRC continues to be humbled by the numbers of generous volunteers and their committment to Building Homes and Bringing hope to people in need!
