In order for the work of Open Hand Ministries to effect genuine and lasting change, it must remain an effort of many open hands. Consider how you can support our efforts…

“Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.”Psalm 127:1

Join Our Open Hands

Are you a hands-on person with a servant’s heart but concerned about your skill set?

Don’t be – we welcome all skill sets to our volunteer workdays. We will find ways to serve with you in meaningful ways. Workdays are held on select weekdays, weekends, and evenings. To receive updates on our workday schedule, sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of the page.


Are you a trade-skill professional who is committed to your trade and to helping others?

We have ways for you to plug-in and make a real difference with your skills. OHM is registered with the State of Pennsylvania as a general contractor and is fully insured. We are committed to doing things right. Contact Tim Raufer for additional information and/or requirements to participate.


Are you a building supplier interested in donating or discounting quality building materials/supplies to the cause of justice?

Every donation helps us reach our goals. We are a 501(c)(3) organization and can provide you documentation for your charitable contribution deduction. Contact Tim Raufer to make arrangements.
