We are asking for your help in welcoming young Big River First Nation community members into their new homes! Our team is looking for you to help us fund housewarming gift boxes for youth to be comfortable and set up in their new homes.

Housing is a fundamental human right, yet Governmental policy and other systemic barriers result in inadequate housing on First Nations in Canada. One House Many Nations has worked alongside NICE.YXE students at Nutana Collegiate in Saskatoon to construct homes for houseless youth in Big River First Nation. The youth design and build the houses.

The homes are well-constructed, healthy homes that have given their residents a safe space to call home. This grassroots model of housing circumvents colonial housing policies that have been imposed on reserve through the outdated Indian Act. First Nations communities face many barriers when trying to secure quality, affordable and sustainable housing. The construction of these homes aids in ending houselessness on reserve, builds community skills capacity and promotes a lifestyle closely connected to community, culture, and land.

Please help us reach our goal by donating to the Welcome Home boxes. Each handmade wooden box contains items such as: bedding, dishes, pots and pans, shower curtain, cutlery, towels, soap, broom, mop, dustpan and other essentials.
