WHR Builds is a group of people with a passion and interest in building and/or rehabilitating housing on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
We send several volunteers to the reservation in April to look over housing rehab requests. The volunteers Plan the projects and write up a bill of materials for the projects.
We purchase the required materials, and then in August we send the main group to the reservation to do the rehabbing over a period of a week or more.
We place a great emphasis on rehabbing the homes of Lakota elders and disabled veterans.
For anyone interested in construction, this is a wonderful way to give back to people who are so very grateful for whatever help we can give them.
