Economic Development & Financial
Financial Work Shops
Financial Work Shops: Help Indian people to better manage their financial affairs, their food and fuel assistance to ensure their survival throughout the entire month.

Considering most reservation Indians receive numerous government assistance, i.e., food stamps, commodities, unemployment, charitable programs, and more. If Indian people managed their financial and food assistance there would be no starvation for most. However many do not have transportation to receive government and charitable assistance.

Understand what little assistance is received just barely prevents starvation. Therefore, there needs to be financial workshops to teach individuals how to better manage their financial and food assistance. This should include how to better share with immediate and extended family members living within the same residence.

This program is hoped to receive future funding It is seriously needed to prevent starvation and freezing.

Micro Management Loans & Training

Micro Management Loans & Training: The purpose of this program is to encourage Indian craftsmen to market their art & crafts to become self-sufficient. To educate them on the resources available, i.e., SBA Minority Micro Loans, etc.

The Small Business administration (SBA) has a micro management & loan program that will help individual to manage and market their products. This would be helpful to those Indian people who are artists and craftsmen. The SBA has an Indian business loan program available through micro-lenders.

During these economically challenging times, American Indians need assistance on how to utilize existing private, as well as federal, state, and local financial and economic resources. Many Indian owned businesses face problems of not knowing what is available, let alone where and how to utilize and compete for these resources.

Thus program was tested in 2005 with an Apache tribe in New Mexico, resulting in a 50% success rate. This program was funded by a Christian church.

Our Success is only as Good as our Team of Volunteers

We are a grassroots volunteer charity. we strive for 100% of all donations to reach those in need. Our Board, Staff and Volunteers have agreed to accept no salaries for our work with this corporation. Our efforts are to ensure the continual movement of donations and supplies to our fellow Native Americans who are truly in need. Our motive is the sincere desire to serve from the heart, as our ancestors did.

Some of these dedicated volunteers have decades of experience in humanitarian programs, working unselfishly while receiving payments of warm smiles, thank you hugs and heart felt love.

There is no greater satisfaction of the heart then to see the smile on a child’s face when handing them a toy or an elder’s smile upon receiving a warm blanket. There is no greater joy then to serve those who can not serve themselves.
