Campus Projects

landscape-sqWith 32 acres and 25+ buildings, there are campus projects of all sizes and abilities that are needed to keep campus feeling like home for our residents.

Epworth maintains a list of special needs projects for the campus. These projects include improvements such as minor building repairs, painting, remodeling, landscaping, etc. Tools are provided as we are able, materials are provided by the volunteer group. On campus housing may be available for extended projects.

At various points throughout the year, additional administrative assistance is needed.  Tasks include assembling Mother’s Day Offering packets for congregations, organizing welcome boxes for new residents, and other hands-on projects.


Service Saturday is a time for individuals, families, or small groups to participate in a day of service on the campus of Epworth Children’s Home. Projects consist of grounds and maintenance tasks ranging from lawn care, pressure washing, and campus beautification.

You are encouraged to contact our Office of Volunteer Services for more information regarding projects for each Service Saturday.
