Our Story

Solid Rock Carpenters was started in 2005 by the Engle brothers in response to the Hurricane Katrina disaster. The need was great and the enthusiasm to help was even greater. As a result, individuals and families began to volunteer annually in the Gulf Region, and within a few short years SRC developed a database of 3,500 friends and family, who now volunteer nationwide throughout the year.

Locally, SRC has worked with community service leaders, churches and ministries assisting in building and repair projects. Nationally and Internationally, SRC has aligned itself with organizations and ministries that work alongside families and communities in need. SRC's resources of volunteers and skilled leadership have been intrumental in providing communities in need with new homes, home restoration, playgrounds, beds for homeless shelters, barns, fences and many other necessary repairs. 

Throughout the past 11 years, SRC has organized 50 traveling volunteer teams serving those less fortunate.
