Presbyterian Hope in Action

​Thanks to Presbyterian Hope In Action’s (“PHIA”) thriving Hurricane Sandy relief program, the Brick Church Deacons recently made the decision to work exclusively with PHIA as the church’s sole housing mission partner. As hard as it may be to believe, there are people right here in New York City who are still trying to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. Many of these homeowners will tell you stories of having over five feet of water in their homes and losing almost all their possessions overnight. The Brick Church is proud to partner with PHIA and Friends of Rockaway to help our fellow New Yorkers rebuild their homes and their lives. Anyone interested in volunteering is welcome (volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian). No prior experience or skills are necessary, just enthusiasm!
Build days for 2016-17 are Oct. 15, Nov. 12, Jan. 7, Feb. 4 and March 4 (Brick Church Day of Discipleship). Please contact one of the PHIA Deacons listed below in advance of the build date so that we can coordinate logistics to and from the worksite: Sam Caspersen, Rob Masella, Arthur Bingham or Jay Steen.
