Sponsorship Program





The Sponsorship program has always been an important OS program that brings assistance directly to families and elders and also promotes inter-cultural understanding and friendship. Both families and sponsors tell us frequently how much it means to them. Both seem to gain equal benefits from the program. There are about 800 sponsors in the program at this time and about 1000 children and elders on the waiting list hoping for a sponsor. The children and elders on the program have urgent needs for warm clothing, blankets, shoes, food and other basic needs.

Stop Hunger and Support the Culture of Sharing

Another holiday is just around the corner and for most of us it represents the time of year that we focus on sharing gifts and taking time out to spend with our loved ones. In the Lakota culture, that spirit of sharing and community isn't limited to a specific time of year. Instead it's an integral part of their identity.

Rosebud Soup Kitchen

200 Kids Have Nothing for Christmas

Rosebud Soup Kitchen

Marian Sorace, who runs the soup kitchen on Rosebud, has let us know that there are about 200 kids who eat regularly at the soup kitchen who will have nothing for Christmas this year. Marian manages the soup kitchen year round and One Spirit helps with food.

Toys are needed for kids of all ages. A bit of holiday cheer can help lift the spirits of kids who would otherwise be without hope. Just a medium gift will let a child know that someone cares about them.

Toys can be sent to Marian Sorace at one of the addresses below and will be distributed at the Christmas meal at the Soup Kitchen.

Marian's number is 605-828-5013

Ground breaking for Allen Youth Center

We are so excited to get these first photos of the ground being cleared for the Allen Youth Center. Today a groundbreaking ceremony is being held although the temperature is 20 degrees and it is snowing. The community is celebrating.

The youth center has been the stuff of dreams and hard work for a couple of years. The building and programs are a promise to Lakota youth – recognition that they are the future of the Lakota nation and that they will have the help they need to carry forward the traditions and responsibilities of their people.

The center will be opened in the Spring and you are invited to the ceremonies.

Our plan continues. We must now furnish this youth center and then proceed to build such a place within reach of every youth on the reservation.

At this time of year, we give thanks for what we have been able to do together. Let's continue our success.

Make your year-end donation one that supports the Lakota people.
