Some of Our Hopi Projects:

And each year since 1999 we have evolved our projects based on their input, annual review of what has been effective, and donations coming in. We coordinate with Hopi service providers and families, outside resource providers and our supporters.

Supplies & Food for Hopi Families
Annual Hopi Holiday Winter Gifting ProjectYour donations have supported this since 1999. We take food and gifts to families and elders in several villages.
Hopi School Children SupportWe take school and learning supplies to Hopi youth, including Hopi foster home kids, in the fall and again during our annual Hopi Holiday Project winter gifting project. You can also sponsor a child/family with monthly monetary donations or even ship supplies to them.
We provide supplies in support of Hopi traditional ceremonies.
Hopi Orchard – Garden- Healthy Eating ProjectOrchards, edible shrubs, herbs, kitchen garden projects using low water drip systems and permaculture design-with-nature practices as part of creating more local food supply and healthier diet. There is growing interest at Hopi in this type of food raising along with the traditional dry-farm crops that Hopi farmers have cultivated for centuries.
Hopi Winter Heat Support
Hopi Home RepairToday, with growing population and changing building styles, many Hopi families face overcrowding, have substandard housing, indoor air quality challenges with the coal heaters, inadequate plumbing, insect infestations, poorly weatherized/drafty, and much higher than average housing disrepair. Hopi Home Repair Projects. Many of the Hopi Housing Project homes are decades old and in need of major repairs to roofs, plumbing and electrical. Cash for supplies and skilled help is often hard to find in this remote area with few job opportunities. Traditional stone homes collapse once the roof goes into disrepair. Some villages do not have sewer and water and alternative water set ups are needed.
