The Crow Creek Volunteer Center

Crow Creek Volunteer Center

Dacotah Tipis.Org, a Habitat for Humanity affiliate on the Crow Creek Indian Reservation in central South Dakota is sponsoring and building a community volunteer center to house and support the many volunteers who travel to Crow Creek to help alleviate the critical housing shortage in our community. Our volunteers spend quite a bit of hard-earned money to get here. Once they get here, they have to spend even more to stay in hotels and campgrounds for the duration of their stay. Many volunteers who wish to come here to help (especially the young adults and retired folks) are not able to stay as long as they would like, or even make their mission trips here due to the current economic hardships.

The New Dacotah Tipis Volunteer CenterWell, now we have a solution! For $30,000.00, we can finish a 50 bed volunteer center in Crow Creek by renovating the lower level of an existing/operating building. The center will provide groups and individuals a place to bunk, cook their meals, shower, and relax after a long day of working on our Habitat for Humanity projects and other humanitarian projects here in the community. The center will be built “by volunteers for volunteers” which is how we will complete it so affordably. The project will also give our selected partner families another opportunity to do some “sweat equity” above and beyond the 400 hours they are required put in on their own homes.

$50.00 or more donors’ names will be embossed on a plaque that will hang in the main commons area of the facility to express our gratitude and to inspire volunteers for years to come. All donations of $1000.00 or more will receive a hand-made Native American Morning Star quilt for their generosity. Any amount, large or small is appreciated!
