ONWT is a comprehensive resource & referral agency, providing a broad range of culturally appropriate programs, services & crisis interventions for Native Americans-the most underserved & misrepresented group in the U.S. Indigenous people experience higher levels of poverty, hunger, homelessness & unemployment than any other demographic. We transition individuals & families out of crisis & into sustainable situations.
Our mission embodies the notion that, one by one, we truly can make a difference. Governed by a Native Board, we strive to meet the needs of the local Native American community. Ninety cents of every dollar donated aids Indigenous People. In 2018, $305,965 of donated goods were gifted to people in need across the Pikes Peak Region. Furthermore, educational programming provides native to non-native cultural exchange.
A cargo van to aid with service delivery, board members, an office phone system. Event, warehouse and office volunteers. Fundraising and sponsorship help. Hygiene items, bus passes, gas cards.
Native Americans are the most marginalized demographic in the U.S. whether they live in a reservation or in an urban area.
“I have watched ONWT grow from something small to something great for our community by providing people in need with shelter, furniture, & more. Being a part of this mission is a place of honor & has helped me grow as an elder & spiritual leader.” — Eddie Three Eagles
