For our housing mission, Okiciyapi Tipi focuses mainly on building new houses and rehabbing existing homes to support members of the community of Eagle Butte.
In the past, rehab work has included:
- Interior and exterior
- Walls and roofing
- Wheelchair accessibility ramps
The goal of our affiliate is not only to help improve housing in Eagle Butte, but to work with community members and homeowners to improve their ability to repair and maintain their own homes. Homeowners provide the supplies to implement repairs, and work closely with Okiciyapi Tipi to complete them.
Volunteers of all experience levels are welcome, whether you're a professional contractor or you've never lifted a power tool. Like most nonprofit organizations, Okiciyapi Tipi runs on the willingness and manpower of volunteers. Any interested parties should call or email our office for more information.
