A group of 200 Christian youths has volunteered to paint and repair the homes of 27 disadvantaged residents in Ogden and South Ogden next week.

The youths will participate in a weeklong work camp through the Group Workcamps Foundation. The program is designed to help youths increase their faith while serving others.

The homeowners include 19 senior citizens, six disabled adults and two single parents. Youths will paint interior and exterior walls, replace steps and porches and construct wheelchair ramps.

This year's northern Utah Group Workcamp will be held Sunday through June 21.
