Community Service Wayne County, New York

Located in a lush region with green rolling hills, Wayne County, New York is a remarkable community with a vibrant, established relationship with Week of Hope.

The historic Erie Canal passes through the nearby village of Newark, allowing boaters to travel along a scenic water route from Albany to Buffalo. The community incorporates a portion of the Canal Way Trail System, giving ample recreation for hikers, bikers, or individuals who just wish to enjoy wildlife and quiet trails.

Week of Hope teams will be serving in an area where they are needed and appreciated. Shifts in industry and agriculture have left the region in a long-standing period of economic adjustment. As is frequently the case, the very old and the very young often feel much of the burden—and the Week of Hope in Wayne County focuses on these populations.

Deep friendships are built through Jesus-centered service: A local family still has a picture on the wall of their children with campers from a Week of Hope camp four years ago. Teams are both anticipated for their arrival and remembered when they leave. If you come to Wayne County, you will leave knowing that you have been a blessing to specific people.

Our long-term host is a partnership of two churches—and between the two churches is a park that’s home to a weekly farmers market. Teams will experience the benefits of the established relationships in the community—including meals prepared by groups such as Rotary.

What We Will Do

As your team members enter into the lives of others and build relationships with the people of Wayne County, they’ll experience God working through them at projects such as these:

Perform grounds maintenance at a multi-acre organization that provides an oasis for young people battling cancer.
Sort donations, clean and paint, and spend time with children at a safe house for victims of domestic violence.

Assist with home repair and painting for residents from several local churches. Work on projects at the Trail of Hope and then share the trail with nursing home residents. Provide VBS program for neighborhood kids.

Do minor fix-up repairs to homes belonging to elderly or disabled individuals, and spend time visiting and befriending the residents.

We have a Local Coordinator who maintains connections throughout the year with the organizations we serve so that our service and relationships are sustainable. She is super passionate about helping the community and even manages one of our partner organizations. She will be a great resource to you this summer!

We will be volunteering with a variety of organizations throughout Wayne County, including a community hospital, local ministries, a couple community gardens and trails, a women’s shelter and more.
