Playing outside is fun if you have warm clothes!
Playing outside is fun if you have warm clothes!

We work hard to provide a safe, welcoming place for children and families to heal. People often ask what kinds of items we need the most, but the answer is simple — we need what you need.

Things like toilet paper and toothpaste that run out. A cozy pair of pajamas, slippers and a warm blanket for cold nights. Towels for your morning shower.

Cheyenne River Indian Outreach gratefully accepts a variety of household items to be used for our shelters and to help women establish a safe home of their own.
