Urban Immersion is Hand in Hand’s newest program devoted to building relationships in our hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. Prompted by a local pastor the question arose, “Why are you flying over your own mission field?” With need in our own backyard, it was time to reevaluate how we lend a hand and how we change lives.
This program asks volunteers to work with local residents on community impact projects, take part in area activities and eat at homegrown restaurants. The program hopes to attract local volunteers, corporations and nationwide groups to provide a variety of service in Louisville from one-day service experiences to week-long immersion trips.
Our hometown of Louisville, Kentucky is no different than any other region we serve. We have diverse groups yearning to work together to achieve a common goal. We want to bridge the gap of various areas in Louisville by creating conversation, enhancing the community and building lasting relationships for our town through community impact projects.
These overnight experiences will be tailored to Northeast East Christian Church participants. Must be 18 years old to participate. Families are welcome. Youth are encouraged to participate as long as a parent of the same sex is participating as well.
