Sierra Service Project (SSP)’s purpose is to build strong connections and resilience among communities, by equipping volunteers in home repair skills and community-based projects. Making necessary home repairs accessible to historically underserved residents allows communities to thrive and individuals to safely age in place. Inherent in the purpose is the specific involvement of youth and young adult volunteers.

In the past 20 years, SSP has grown significantly in terms of the regions and communities we serve, and the types of programs that we offer. We offer both year-round and weeklong summer programs in communities throughout the west. Our current partner communities are Chiloquin, OR, Sacramento County, Navajo Nation, and Del Norte County.

In 2023, our 48th summer of service, we completed 26 home repair projects and 10 community service projects with 486 volunteers.


Building faith and strengthening communities through service to others.


We need funds for general operating expenses. In a typical year, unrestricted donations account for about 60-70% of our total income.

We also maintain a small fleet of work vehicles (trucks and vans), most of which were donated to us. Some of them, in particular our tow-capable trucks (which we use to transport tool trailers to site) are beginning to show their age.

We seek capable board members who represent the various communities we serve. Our organization needs diversity in its board – diversity of life experience, background, skills, religious affiliation, age, gender, and ethnicity.
