Ramp Request Form

Boots on the Ground has multiple serve opportunities broken up into different teams. When you join our team, you will receive emails informing you of opportunities to serve in the area(s) of your interest. Each team focuses on a different part of the ministry.

On average, a project lasts 2-3 hours. We seek to stop at 4 hours no matter what. We ask that you commit to team up with us at least once a month if you can for a couple of hours. For more information, please contact 

Serve Opportunities
  • Anti-slip Team – This team applies anti-slip material as a follow up to previous ramp builds. This is a great opportunity to pray for those that we have already served if you feel led.
  • Beds 4 Kids – The mission of this ministry is to partner with Hope Haven, Noah Project, CPS, 2Ingage, and many others to provide a bed for any child who doesn’t have one.  You can help by assisting us in putting these together.  No special skills needed.
  • Cooking Team - This team feeds the physical and spiritual needs of the community in which we are serving and also supports the Prison Ministry efforts.  
  • Disaster Relief - Join in disaster relief and recovery efforts in the Big Country and the surrounding areas. Projects will vary depending on need. 
  • Donations Ministry– We pick up donations and distribute them to those in need.  We try hard to help others coming out of programs such as the Noah Project, New Beginnings, Hope Haven and others by making their transition easier as we donate needed items.  You don’t need a truck, just a willing heart!
  • Houses for Healing - This team helps to care for the sick by providing low cost, temporary housing to those who are receiving long-term medical treatment away from home at our Beltway Tiny House. One specific team is the Cleaning Team. Please contact us if you'd be interested in serving on this team. 
  • Module Team - This team meets at our warehouse to put the frames for the ramp together prior to the ramp build. This is usually a 1-2 hour project that is a great time of fellowship.
  • Ramp Build Team – These teams serve those with mobility issues to get in and our of their house by building a wheelchair ramp. No experience necessary.
  • Grab Bar Team - This team helps serve by installing grab bars or other safety related products in homes. If you'd like to submit a request for Grab Bar Installation, please click here.  
  • Yards for the Elderly and Disabled – The Mission of this ministry is to bless the elderly and disabled by mowing their grass at least twice a month and praying for them as we serve.

Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Beds 4 Kids 

Beds 4 Kids is a Ministry that services families in and around the Big Country who are in need of beds. These beds go to families we've partnered with through Hope Haven, Noah Project, CPS, 2Ingage, and many others. Boots on the Ground helps these families by building beds to meet this immediate need all throughout the year.

You can partner with Boots on the Ground by donating NEW twin sheets for our Beds 4 Kids Ministry. These donations are needed all throughout the year. Sheets can be dropped off at the Boots on the Ground trailer in the south west parking lot of the South Campus.

Beltway Prison Ministry 

Beltway Prison Ministry opportunities include teaching classes at the Middleton Unit, French Robertson Unit, involvement in both Kairos Outside and Kairos Inside, and visiting other prisons within the state. For more information or to get involved please email us at:
