Casa volunteers can share in the history of the Apache people and support their economic development through the Franciscan Renewal Center’s partnership with Apache Fair Trade Crafting Cooperative (AFTCO). This vital cop-op helps American Indians from the San Carlos and White Mountain Apache tribes advance their economy, improve local wages and engage in meaningful work that is at the core of their ancestral spirituality.

Volunteers act as “Sellers” to set up craft sales at the Casa and other locations across greater Phoenix. Craft sales typically occur in conjunction with other community activities, retreats, or outside groups visiting the Casa. Working with AFTCO gives Casa volunteers a deeper understanding and appreciation for our Apache sisters and brothers in Arizona.
