Love People. Work Hard. Serve Jesus.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." -Mathew 5:16
What We Do
516 Project, Inc is a Christian based 501c3 non-profit construction ministry based in Fredericksburg, Va. Founded in 2016. Our ministry shares the love of Jesus with people in need. At times when people are feeling overlvhelmed or defeated by their circumstances we want to be the light in the darkness helping them out of that place. Our mission is to help home owners in need of home repairs that are unable to afford or have physical barrier to completing the repairs on their own. Through partnership with area churches, localities and businesses we are able to have our volunteers help these residents by fixing leaky roofs, repairing damaged floors, ﬁxing plumbing, painting, building handicap ramps, yard clean up, house cleaning and so much more.
We are a 100% volunteer operated organization. We would love to have you join us as we serve those in need. While a majority of our workdays are focused around home repairs and construction tasks, there are plenty of other volunteer opportunities available as well. Photography, home visits, material delivery, paperwork, letter writing, marketing etc. Please feel free to contact us for current needs.
What we've been doing lately
November 14, 2017
On November 11, 2017 we had an amazing time serving our community. A huge thanks to Spotswood Baptist Church for being our host church, and Pastor Rob Maddox for sharing a devotional with our teams at our morning meeting. Even with frigid temperatures, we had 38 volunteers serving at 8 different homes in Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and Stafford. Saturday we had teams working till after dark and even had 4 people come back out Sunday after church and work till 7:30pm finalizing the handicap ramp build.
We are so incredibly blessed by these wonderful volunteers that give of their time and efforts to love and serve our neighbors. Thanks to these volunteers:
– a family in Spotsylvania now has a new roof on their home
– An elderly couple in Spotsylvania now has a safe handicap ramp
– 6 widows and families have cleaned and maintained yards
In addition to our amazing volunteers, this was made possible by some terrific local sponsors.
