dates to remember
To keep down trip costs it helps to know who is going as soon as possible for estimating lodging and food. It is most helpful to have applications at least two months prior to the trip. Team meetings and trianings are approximately one moneh prior to the trip.
If it is getting close to the trip time, and you haven't applied yet, don't let that deter you! Contact us today!
costs for the trip
Each trip has its own budget, and is different based on the number of people and related trip expenses. Fees include transportation from Springfield to White Earth, lodging and all meals while there. An itemized budget is available for review upon request. Please contact us to request specific trip cost information.
Christmas on the rez
Each December, a small group of volunteers head up north to help with community Christmas dinners and any other way we can. This is a short, face-paced trip. If you are a self-motivator and can be flexible to roll with changes, this might be a trip for you.
In the spring, HFtFN leads a group of university students to do work on the reservation. If your youth group or school group is interested in putting a trip together during spring break or another time, contact us to coordinate. There's always work to be done.
Pine Point Powwow
August means Powwow in Pine Point! If you are interested in going up on a short trip to experience Powwow, please contact us. We don't always have a full team going, so organized trips may not happen every year.
come with us!
One of the most important parts of our mission is to form relationships. Real relationships. We do this, not by going somewhere once never to return again, but we return over and over until they know our names and we know theirs.
Come with us. Serve with us. Love with us. This is the gospel we preach.
