Amigos Days is a hands-on ministry of The United Methodist Church and People Helping People (a City of Dallas Housing Revitalization Program). We partner with inner-city Methodist Host Churches to repair and restore homes to make a positive difference in their neighborhoods.
Amigos Days

Amigos Days is a Dallas project that sends local church teams to areas affected by urban blight, one of Dallas’ major problems. Dallas is a city with crisis-level poverty, a declining median income and a housing stock that is in decay. The city’s goal is to reduce blight by 25%, and Amigos Days is helping to make that goal possible.
