Ozark Mission Project coming to West Memphis


Ministry looking for homes in need of minor repairs this summer

By Ralph Hardin

Ozark Mission Project (OMP), a nonprofit ministry that brings youth groups to cities across the state each summer to serve individuals and families, is asking for applications from West Memphis- area residents who are in need of minor home repair projects.

OMP is hosting a summer mission week in West Memphis on June 23-28, where youth and adult volunteers would like to complete a number of service projects.

Minor home repair projects can range from yard work and house painting to more challenging tasks, such as construction of porches and wheelchair ramps.

To be considered for a project, each individual or family must fill out a one-page application requesting services they need.

Age, income, and religion are not requirements when applying for a service project. Because of donations, OMP is able to provide service projects at no cost to individuals and families in West Memphis this summer.

“OMP strives to be a helping hand to Arkansans who, for financial or physical reasons, cannot maintain their homes.

We are expecting over 650 youth volunteers and staffers serving across the state this summer,” said Bailey Faulkner, executive director of Ozark Mission Project.

The one-page application may be submitted online and can be found at www.ozarkmissionproject. org under the “Neighbors” tab. Printed applications can be emailed to janderson@ozarkmissionproject. org or mailed to P.O. Box 26525, Little Rock, AR 72221. Applications must be received by May 15, 2024.

For additional information and questions, call 501-6643232.
