When we ask what did you enjoy the most about being at Fort? “Working“ is an answer we hear a lot!


Small groups of men have been volunteering here since we started in 1956. There’s just something special about work! Fort is blessed by those who will invest a weekend or a week; we’ve heard that the blessing goes two ways. We call these groups, “Transform Team”. They transform projects to transform lives. We utilize carpenters, painters, assistants, electricians, plumbers and many others to make Fort happen. Some use these teams as outreach tools because it’s less risky for some men to work than to attend a "spiritual" retreat.
