Sierra Service Project’s (SSP) mission is:

“Building faith and strengthening communities through service to others.”

SSP is a Christian non-profit organization providing life-changing experiences through acts of service repairing homes in rural and urban communities. SSP invites middle school and high school youth and young adults to experience the profound power of serving people who have a culture and life experience different from their own. During their domestic Summer Program each year, approximately 1,400 youth and 400 adult volunteers from 180 churches and over 40 paid summer staff live, worship and work together on six different site locations. Together, their work results in over 100 safer, drier and more comfortable homes and community centers.

Ladera Community Church has been supporting SSP through our donations and participation since 2013, and it has formed the backbone of our youth program.
