Community Rehab kicks off 22nd year

Community Rehab Project is celebrating its 22nd year of renovating homes in Comanche County and will return after the Project had to be cancelled in 2020. 304 Comanche County homes have been repaired as a part of the annual event. This Sunday, June 13, the Project will gear up for another full week of working on the exterior of 11 area homes. Approximately 175 adult and youth volunteers from Texas and Louisiana cities will be in our Comanche County communities working on Rehab projects that are zero cost to the homeowner. Materials such as windows, caulk, shingles, plywood, nails, etc. come from provided donations and labor comes from the love of others.

Project homes are still in the selection process and not finalized as of press time but seven are located in Comanche, three in De Leon, one in Gustine. Eligible homeowners provide their homes to Community Rehab crews to allow teaching young adults the importance of giving to their community.

Community Rehab Project has now worked on 304 homes throughout Comanche County since its start of one home in 2000. The outreach experience covers one full week in June and is held the week leading into Father’s Day.

The daily schedule for Project week starts with crews being on their job sites each morning at 7:30 a.m. Breaks include one mid-morning and then a lunch break that includes a short Bible study. Work each day will stop around 4:30 p.m. After showers and supper, a worship service is held each night at 7:00 p.m. in the Comanche High School gym. The public is invited and encouraged to attend the nightly worship services.
