Jim Hodges got the vision for CWCf in the late 1960’s. It was incorporated in 1970, and since then has sent hundreds of volunteer work teams to various places in the US and twenty foreign countries. For many years we were known primarily by our nickname, Hard Hats for Christ. Dave Williamson joined CWCf in 2002, assuming the role of President in 2006. He was appointed CEO in 2007. Jim Hodges officially retired in 2016, after nearly 50 years of service to the Mission.
- CWCf has been an IRS approved 501-C (3) non-profit since November 1971. The leadership is under a Board of Directors to which the CEO is responsible. The main office is mobile, roaming the country in an RV. Branch offices are located in Penrose, Colorado and Longview, Texas. Donations are still collected by our Treasurer at PO Box 636 in Kelso, WA 98626.
- CWCf is financially supported by the gifts of individuals and churches. Our Building In Youth division was awarded a number of grants from interested foundations.
- CWCf assists only on projects for established mission groups, churches, camps or schools, or other Christian non-profit organizations that have evangelism and Christian growth as their main goal, who are in agreement with our Statement of Faith, and whose need and project has been carefully and prayerfully evaluated by the CWCf staff as authorized by our Board of Directors.
- CWCf is not affiliated with any particular church or denomination but is evangelical in outlook and conservative in doctrine. Read more…
