BUILDING COMMUNITY: Gatherings organized by HOWA guide new nomads in the skills needed to thrive, teach the value of honoring the public lands where we camp, and promote lasting friendships.
EMERGENCY FUND IN ACTION:When the unexpected happens HOWA provides loaner tents for temporary shelter and funds for tires, repairs, gas, and other necessities.
VAN BUILDS: A pressing need for shelter is solved by converting minivans and other suitable vehicles into simple homes on wheels. Volunteers come together for two weeks several times a year to complete the homes.
SPECIAL PROJECTS: Generous donations of solar panels from Santan Solar and funds from the Berger Foundation allowed HOWA to award solar panel kits to 40 deserving recipients.
FUTURE PLANS: HOWA will use donated and purchased land for gathering, training, and building centers. This will free up resources and allow HOWA to serve more people.
