About Service International...
Our Goals

Service International helps people in spiritual, physical, and situational crises. Our programs are unique and our follow-through is unparalleled.

 

When disaster strikes, government and relief organizations converge on the scene with food, water, and other necessary supplies. While SI also provides immediate disaster relief, our focus is on complete, long-term recovery. Our primary goal is to make each community we serve capable of continuing its own restoration program long after we have gone. In order to accomplish that task, we train residents and local authorities in volunteer and material coordination as well as reconstruction techniques.

 

The communities that SI helps end up better than they were before their catastrophe. Natural disaster is an equal opportunity destroyer, and recovery must also be equal opportunity. Racial, religious, and social barriers come crashing down as entire communities pull together for survival. The benefits of this kind of recovery will last for generations!

 

As well as providing disaster relief services, SI has partnered with other organizations in a variety of humanitarian projects: receiving donations of winter coats for the needy; serving nutritious summertime lunches to St. Louis school children; providing food supplies and support for Thanksgiving and Christmas Day meals for the homeless; and providing logistical support for Give Kids A Smile, a project which donates free dental care to underprivileged children across the nation.
