Raising awareness, saving lives!
Folks living on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation have relied on Cheyenne River Indian Outreach (CRIO) services for nearly 30 years.
Native American children ages 10-18 who have experienced some form of abuse or neglect receive care from CRIO’s Child Services Center.
Battered women and children find a safe haven in CRIO’s Family Violence Shelter. Many other reservation residents utilize the mission’s growing outreach programs.
But, CRIO could not do it alone …
Thanks to many local agencies, including City and Tribal Police Departments, Emergency Responders, Ambulance Service and the Department of Social Services for both the State of South Dakota and the Bureau of Indian Affairs, clients are informed of all the options available to them, even if it’s something CRIO can’t provide.
To show their gratitude for these organizations and their efforts to keep Native American women and children safe, CRIO has hosted a series of appreciation events.
Pilamaya — thank you — to the agencies who collaborate with CRIO to make our work possible!
