Campus Projects

landscape-sqWith 32 acres and more than 25 buildings, we need help with all sorts of campus projects. These projects of all sizes, requiring all ability levels, help keep our campus a haven for our residents.

Epworth maintains a list of special needs campus projects such as minor building repairs, painting, remodeling, landscaping, etc. Tools are provided as we are able, while materials are provided by the volunteer group. On-campus housing may be available to volunteers 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 typically consist of lawn care, pressure washing, beautification, and other grounds/maintenance needs. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 803-256-7394 for more information on Service Saturday.
