Experts say that Hurricane Ian is the strongest storm on record to ever hit southwest Florida. On September 28, Floridians braced for impact as the Category 4 storm roared ashore with 155 mph winds.
The storm has caused flooding along the coast, homes destroyed and damaged, uprooted and scattered trees and debris, and many other damages to the area.
Adventures in Missions has partnerships with local churches and pastors who know the needs of their communities. We are continuing to assess the damages across the impacted areas to meet emergency needs of home repairs, debris removal, and more.
As roads begin to clear and families begin to return home, local communities and survivors are in desperate need of assistance to bring life back to the Gulf of Florida. Join us on a mission to bring emergency relief to those affected by Hurricane Ian.
Here’s a video of our base in Fort Myers to give you a feel for where you’ll be staying. The base is located in Harlem Heights, the community in which we work, so everything is walkable.

The safety of our participants is a top priority for us. We have both an internal Risk Management team and external Risk Management consultants. We use a multi-pronged approach to risk management – including monitoring information from reporting agencies and relying on the knowledge of our ministry partners. In addition to our own protocols (e.g., students must be with an adult at all times), our ministry hosts and partners will provide trip specific safety guidelines for the particular trip location. Our Project Leaders are trained in risk management and have access to both on-field and home-office support.
Don’t stress about all the options! We can help you build your perfect trip, fill out an interest form to ask questions and learn about our upcoming trips.
