W.A.R.M.

The Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry, Inc. (WARM) began in 1996 in response to Hurricanes Bertha and Fran. Volunteers from across our region were organized by leaders of the Wilmington District of the United Methodist Church to repair the damaged homes of low income and elderly residents. As they entered the homes, volunteers noticed that much of the damage predated the storms. So, while responding to a natural disaster, WARM volunteers discovered a social disaster:      substandard housing. By addressing the social disasters, WARM has continued its mission to improve the living conditions of low income homeowners, including many elderly and disabled. Since its inception, WARM has helped over 700 families in Southeastern North Carolina. WARM will keep going until every homeowner in our service area is able to live safely and independently in the home they worked so hard to pay for. Trinity is very active in the Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry. Our members have donated countless hours of volunteer service in repairing homes, and have served on the WARM Board of Directors. Proceeds from some of our Pancake Breakfasts go to give financial support to WARM.
