Why are we serving here?

Every year, ForColumbia has chosen Coyote Hill as a serving site because of this organization’s impact on our community. Though located approximately 30 minutes northwest of Columbia, the vast majority (over 90%) of children who have called Coyote Hill home for a season of their lives are actually from Boone County; Coyote Hill has been providing a safe haven for many Columbia children since 1991. When we spend time working for the benefit of others in our community who are hurting, we send the message that they are valuable.

What can I expect?

ForColumbia volunteers will be serving all over Coyote Hill’s property, working on construction, cleaning, and repair projects, including:

  • deep cleaning each of the six homes on their property;
  • cleaning vehicles used to transport kids to various activities;
  • landscaping around multiple homes, including weeding, planting and mulching;
  • building garden beds at one new home;
  • cleaning up basketball courts;
  • building a fire pit;
  • building and painting new picnic tables;
  • power washing some of the homes, and/or their decks;
  • building another lean-to shed for horses.
