Our Monthly Reports
Wonder how we spend our time and utilize donations?
Stay up-to-date with our on-the-ground work through our “Hope Reports.” Each month we reflect upon work we have done within Native communities, highlighting programs, partnerships, and hope in action.
At Native Hope, we strive to build relationships with tribal leaders to identify needs better. This month, we had requests from numerous organizations and tribal members throughout the state of South Dakota. Thank you, donors, for supporting us on this journey. We can not do this work without you!
Over the course of September, we traveled nearly 1,000 miles to provide aid to local reservations! This consisted of delivering over 1,200 boxes of much-needed items to three reservations, supplying three tribal schools with supplies for their students, and providing COVID-19 kits for families in need.
With the COVID-19 virus resurfacing across the country, it is important to revisit our core values and listen to each other to protect our communities and loved ones. Our mission at Native Hope is to serve and provide direct support to Native communities and families to honor and preserve Native culture and traditions.
July brought Native Hope and the surrounding communities many opportunities for outreach and flourishing connections. The team traveled nearly 1,500 miles around the state to attend fellowship events and provide assistance for programs and organizations to, in turn, provide for their communities.
Giving fills the heart with warmth. This holiday season, Native Hope experienced the immense generosity of our supporters and partners. Their joy of giving allowed us to provide toys, food, clothing, natural medicines, blankets, heaters, and more to the Crow Creek, Lower Brule, Rosebud, Yankton, and Pine Ridge reservations.
Holiday Hope Report 2020
Relatives, on and off reservations, are battling the virus in high numbers—many need support. Native Hope continues its COVID relief efforts in various ways and with the aid of other organizations. These efforts would not be possible without the support and donations from our donors and volunteers.
