H2O Akron college students are heading to Memphis, TN to work with SOS--Service Over Self-- and do home repairs! Since 1986, SOS has been serving Memphis’s most vulnerable homeowners by repairing over 1000 homes. SOS’s hope is quite simple: “SOS exists to glorify God by proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ in underserved neighborhoods through home repair and leadership development.”
Our primary goal while we are there is to serve the Memphis community through urban home repair. Additionally, while we are down there, we hope to learn more about race and the church through researching Akron’s racial history and taking a pilgrimage to the National Civil Rights Museum.
