Who is Mission Possible?Mission Possible is a non-for-profit 501c3 formally known as Mission Possible - Dominic Republic, Inc. It has a full constituted Board of Trustees who are charged by their by-laws to develop and grow the mission outreach in the Dominican Republic.
Practically, Mission Possible is a network of churches in Northeast Ohio that are sending missionaries to the Dominican Republic to improve the quality of life for the poorest of the poor in the DR. Since 2006 more than 300 unique individuals have participated in the mission trips.
The goal of mission possible is to both address the needs of the poorest of the poor, and raise up the next generation of individuals who will work to create a better world community.
Mission Possible serves through fundraising, construction and community development projects. Our efforts so far have been focused in a small community outside of Higuey, and have resulted in a new community center, school, water and septic system, and additional housing. We have also formed a leadership group within the community to provide for the community's future.
In the aftermath of the recent Haitian earthquake, our assistance is needed more than ever. In response to this need, we are preparing to build an additional 100 housing units to house those fleeing devastation in their home country.
Mission Possible provides the poorest of the poor with direct aid, awareness, leadership education, vocational skills and medical care. Thank you so much for your past and future help. We could not be doing this without our dear and loving family and friends. As always, 100% of your donation goes to helping these people. Many blessings to you all.
Care. Connect. Engage.
Why are we helping?• There is extreme need in this region which has only become more saturated with poverty in light of the recent earthquake in Haiti.
•We share in a global responsibility to care for those most in need.
•There is a strong local connection between Northern Ohio and the Dominican Republic. Many of those in our region come from the DR
•The goal of Mission Possible is to care for the poorest of the poor and to use this experience to raise up the next generation of those who will work in service to the needs of the hungry and poor. This experience addresses real need in a region saturated by poverty and is bold enough to capture the attention and stir the hearts of those participating in the mission itself.
What do we need?Our greatest need is to strengthen financial support for Mission Possible so we can accelerate the services and housing in the region.
WE HAVE THE PLAN.
WE HAVE THE WHEREWITHAL.
WE NEED FINANCIAL SUPPORT.
The challenge of taking teens and twenty-some-things on the trip is that they spend their time raising money to cover their expenses. We need services and construction dollars which will make a direct difference for those most in need.
