How are your New Year’s resolutions coming?

Pillows, sheets and blankets are an essential part of our daily work in our domestic violence shelter.
Pillows, sheets and blankets are an essential part of our daily work in our domestic violence shelter.

At Cheyenne River Indian Outreach, we are grateful to be able to accept nearly any gift that comes our way. You see, in our women’s shelter and in our youth center, we try to create a home environment. Anything you can use in your home, we can use in ours.

This includes things you might not expect, like a blow dryer, curling iron or electric hair straightener. Of course, these aren’t necessary for women who come to the shelter or for establishing a home of their own. But, when it seems your whole life is crumbling around you, being able to care for yourself and feel you look nice can be a great boost of confidence.

What other simple, unexpected things help you prepare for your day?
