Mescalero Apache Tribe Housing Department is working in partnership with the Mescalero School and “Group Work Camps” to bring over 200-300 youth from across the country to Mescalero to help elderly, low- income and disabled families with home repairs. Work Camps are intensive one-week trips that help people grow in Christian faith through service. During the summer of 2018, individuals and youth will spend one week in our community performing hands-on home-repair projects. The work at each home will be done by 5 young people, and at least one adult leader, representing many Christian denominations. Eligible repair projects may include:
- Deck repair/construction
- Wheelchair ramp repair/construction
- Step repair
- Mobile home skirting
- Exterior painting
- Interior painting
Both labor and materials are free to qualifying households!
To learn how your home might be included, please contact the Mescalero Apache Tribe Housing Department at 575-464-9238 or 575-464-9245.
