More than 100 veterans will come together in Houston between October 13th and 15th as the newest recruits of The Mission Continues Fellowship and Service Platoon Programs. In addition to team building and training sessions, Fellows, Service Platoon Leaders, and community members will mobilize for a high-impact community service project. Due to Hurricane Harvey, our volunteers will focus helping with recovery efforts. One of our community service projects will be at Hope Farms where they have launched a virtual kitchen shower called Delivering Hope that will provide flood victims with new kitchen/pantry items and fresh produce from Hope Farms.
We look forward to helping with these efforts and hope to see you out there, and to thank you for your hard work, we’ll feed you at our block party in Independence Heights from 5 –7 pm with music from the Red Cat Jazz Preservation Society.

Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
