Community Outreach

The JTF-Bravo Chapel coordinates monthly humanitarian outreach programs to the neighboring communities around Soto Cano Air Base. 

These programs allow services members to give back while creating spiritual resiliency trough their volunteer work. Service members have an opportunity to provide much needed support not only in remote areas during their missions but also to their neighbors in the Comayagua Valley and department of La Paz. 



Since 2003, the JTF-Bravo Chapel has sponsored 75 Chapel Hikes, approximately six hikes a year. Service members and personnel from JTF-Bravo and Army Support Activity donate money to purchase food and supplies which they carry on their backs up to the neighboring villages to distribute to families in need.

Each Chapel Hikes involves approximately 150 volunteers that donate an estimated 3,000 pounds of food, clothes, toys and school supplies that will help 650 community members.  These hikes are essential to the development of positive relationships among the Honduran communities who are neighbors and supporters of JTF-Bravo and also contribute to JTF-Bravo’s commitment to humanitarian assistance in the host nation. 


Service members from Joint Task Force-Bravo have supported more than 500 children from different orphanages for many years. Each Major Supporting Command sponsors an orphanage where volunteers spend quality time interacting with the children, donate school supplies and also actively engage in construction and renovation projects on the buildings in which the children live or study in.  

Orphanages that JTF-Bravo personnel currently support:   

  • Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe
  • Tierra Santa
  • Saint Anthony of Padua 
  • Jesus of Nazareth


As part of this housing project, service members actively participate in the construction of proper homes for under privileged families in the Comayagua and La Paz departments in Honduras.

For more information on how to support these projects please contact the JTF-Bravo Chapel.
