Fall Break

Healthy Homes, Healthy Hearts: Affordable Housing
In Hartshorne, Oklahoma we’ll partner with Rebuilding Together Kiamichi Country to work on home repairs and improvements for low-income homeowners. Rebuilding Together strives to develop “A safe and healthy home for every person.” Tasks will likely include cleaning, painting, landscaping, and moving furniture and appliances. No training in required. 

Cultivating Communities through Farming: Environmentalism 
SMU Alternative Breaks is proud to host its very first farming-related service trip in Austin, Texas, partnering with Green Gate Farms and another community partner soon to be announced! In four short days, participants will be physically and educationally immersed in the world of organic farming. The group will learn how to farm and most importantly come to understand how to support the production and delivery of quality produce to all of society.
