Prefer to send a monetary donation?

We are pleased to announce donations can now be accepted online, safely and securely!

Thanks to a company called BlueFin, you can even set up a recurring or automatic monthly donation to help Lakota (Sioux) families on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation.

YOU can make a difference by providing a safe haven for families and youth fleeing from violence. Will you help children who would otherwise be out in the cold, alone and afraid, or women who want to break the cycle of violence and start a new life?

We’re grateful for every gift we receive, but recurring monthly donations offer more than just a gift for immediate needs. Knowing we can count on your support each and every month helps ensure the programs and services the community needs will be available by allowing us to plan for the future.

You can even choose the day the transaction is made from your checking or credit card account. Make your gift now!
