Spring Break with Frontier!



The Page Family

It will not be sandy beaches and tropical weather this spring break for two groups of University students, but they will have an opportunity to help one family, improve a community, and experience a region of the country that many of them have not visited. Frontier Housing will team up with volunteers from Haverford College and the University of Dayton participating in alternative spring break programs offered by both universities. Instead of visiting the typical spring break hot spots, groups of students from both schools will spend a week living and working in rural eastern Kentucky building a home for the Page family.

Frontier Housing has always been proud to work with volunteer groups on alternative spring break trips. This year, the volunteer groups will work March12-16 and Eddie and Christina Page couldn't be happier. "We are excited that we are part of this program, and look forward to our home being built," states Eddie. Jim Ward, Frontier's Director of Construction, will work with the students for at least part of the week, and they will be lead at the jobsite by experienced carpenters from Frontier's staff. "It is great to be involved in a program that brings tomorrow's leaders face to face with some of today's problems" states Ward. Frontier wishes to thank the students and faculty from both universities and the Page family for making this experience a reality. Frontier's mission is to build better communities and with partners like these, that mission is accomplished.
