How We Serve
"Extreme Response operates seven staff-led programs and activities to help people living in extreme conditions in developing nations."
Through the work of Extreme Response, thousands of people living in extreme situations are experiencing significant life change. But they’re not the only ones who stand to benefit. You, our donors and volunteers, cannot helped but be changed as well. There’s something very powerful in giving, whether it’s of your finances, your time or your talents.
Videos From the Field
Each year, we celebrate Christmas with thousands of the poorest of the poor. These celebrations bring hope to the hopeless, build trust and cultivate relationships that Extreme Response has developed with those who have been forgotten by society.
Christmas Outreach Teams serve with Extreme Response staff members, partners and local volunteers by providing gifts, food, games, crafts, face painting and lots of hugs. A sightseeing opportunity is included on every trip. We accept volunteers who are sponsored by their company, school, or church, as well as those coming as individuals, all of whom form a single team serving under the Extreme Response leadership. Christmas Outreach Teams are made up of people from various countries, cultures, races and religious affiliations. Because of the intense schedule, with the average trip lasting 8-14 days depending on the location, we require team members to be a minimum of 16 years old and in good health.
