Group Cares is the 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization behind Group Mission Trips, working with and helping communities across the United States and the world since 1990.

Our short-term mission trips are designed to partner with communities and volunteers through service to the elderly, homeless, low-income, and areas affected by natural disasters. Since our beginning, nearly half a million people have racked up millions of volunteer hours serving people in need through our three unique mission trip experiences.

We work hard to bring meaningful service to the communities we serve. Since our beginning, nearly a half-million Group Mission Trips participants have racked up over 14 million volunteer hours serving people in need. Through donations of time, money, and effort, Group Cares has been able to help thousands worldwide.

All these years later, our vision remains true: We strongly believe in providing opportunities for people to grow closer to Jesus through service that promotes long-term community relationships.

Mission statement

Our mission is to serve others through home repair and community service experiences that transform communities and help participants, residents, and partners grow closer to Jesus. This experience is full of life-change for the participants, the people they serve, and the communities they impact.
