A Disaster Relief (DR) deployment is a short-term mission trip to an area of great need. The time to be trained and prepared is before the disaster happens, so that you are ready to go when the storms or floods hit. DR volunteers serve in teams, under the direction of an experienced leader. At the trainings, volunteers receive information on how to get connected with teams so that they can serve. The training classes provide information on how to perform each ministry effectively and safely. Having a Christian influence on the people you serve is, of course, a major emphasis. In DR, you will have the opportunity to bring help, hope, and healing to people who have been affected by disasters.

Marie Younts Girls Group Home
The Marie Younts Group Home was established by Connie Maxwell Children’s Ministries in 1979 and was originally located on Earle Street. Earle Street Baptist Church was instrumental in starting the home and continued a close working relationship with the home with the children attending Earle Street on a regular basis for 17 years. The home moved to its present location in Mauldin in 1996.
Marie Younts Girls’ Home provides residential care for six girls. The girls attend Mauldin High School, and are active in a local South Carolina Baptist Church, participating in Bible study, worship and missions. Encouragement, guidance, counseling and family reunification services are provided for each child.
