Most of the surrounding areas are quite rural. We concentrate our work sites on construction projects. We build ramps, repair homes, work with Habitat extensively and local parishes for assistance with the elderly.
Vans are the preferred mode of transportation due to the distance between sites. Most sites are within 30 minutes from the school. We have a lot of community support and the hosting parish is a yearly participant at CHWC.
