Give veterans on the White Mountain Apache Reservation in Arizona a warm place to call home. Help restore and renovate five homes of Apache veterans this fall to serve those who gave everything to serve their country. This local volunteer opportunity is a great way for members of the Apache community and surrounding areas to use their construction skills to show Christian kindness to one another.

What should I bring?
Safety equipment will be supplied, but please wear clothing that protects you from sharp and blunt objects. Shoes must either be tennis shoes or thicker. Volunteers may use their own personal tools, such as a hammer, nail belt, 1”x25’ tape measure, speed square, utility knife with blades, pry bar, and chalk line. All other tools will be provided.
Are there age restrictions?
Anyone 16 years of age or older may serve on this project. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have an adult chaperone who will volunteer as their supervisor. Only volunteers age 18 and older are permitted to operate motor vehicles and power tools, climb ladders and scaffolding, work on a roof, or engage in any other hazardous activities.
The program focuses on using the skills and talents of local and visiting volunteers to serve those on the reservations through Christ-centered DIY workshops. The workshops allow families to gain the needed skills to repair their own homes while experiencing Christian service and learning about their Savior.
