Group Weekend Workcamp Westfield, Indiana

Located just north of Indianapolis sits the charming community of Westfield, Indiana. Westfield has deep historical roots and has seen much change over the years.

Westfield was part of the Underground Railroad’s central route through Indiana during the 1820s and into the 1830s. The land that was once small farming communities with fields of corn and soybeans, is now transitioning to vibrant, family-focused, business-populated areas.

Locals say the greatest thing about their community is the desire among community leaders and residents to care for the well-being and health of all its residents; they call it the Westfield Welcome!

The shift in economy has created a challenge for people who want to remain in the community but are on fixed incomes or are unable to maintain the home they’ve lived in for many years.

For ages 12+

Where

Participants will stay in an *air-conditioned facility with 6 indoor, private showers per gender. You may want to still bring a few fans for air-movement and white noise. Everyone will be sleeping on floors, gender-separate so bring your air-mattresses too.

When

July 4th – July 10th 2021

Skills

Your participants will provide home repairs at no cost for elderly, disabled, and disadvantaged people who need your help. Work crews typically serve the same resident for the entire trip, creating an environment where meaningful relationships develop.

Most projects are designed to be completed during the trip, allowing your group to experience the satisfaction of a job well done. You’ll serve the needs of others through projects like interior and exterior painting, building or repairing porches and wheelchair ramps, building or repairing steps, weatherization and other home repairs. No skills are needed!

What We Will Do

Mobile home neighborhoods and aging homes in downtown areas are in great need of repair. You’ll serve by providing home repairs—including exterior and interior painting, porch repairs, and constructing new wheelchair ramps.

Our partner hosts many events for the residents throughout the year including back-to-school events providing shoes for students, food for families while school isn’t in session, and various community wide events.
