What are Service Break Trips?

Take your service on the road! UNCW students travel with members of the professional staff to areas of need, increasing their reach to positively impact a regional, national, and global community. Email us with your questions, and save the date for these returning programs.

Spring Break 2017

Join us as we serve at the City of Refuge in Atlanta, Georgia, specifically through a non-profit called Restoration ATL. City of Refuge is the largest homeless shelter for women and children in Atlanta, and Restoration ATL is one of the non-profits supporting this shelter and its residents.

"Being with is more transformational than doing for."

This philosophy is central to Restoration ATL (RATL) and its programs. As we serve with RATL, we live and experience life as City of Refuge's residents experience life. It is a chance to truly walk in another's shoes and learn more about homelessness. Our service and activities throughout the week remain true to this practice.
