About Our Organization

In response to a historic winter storm and flooding in 2019,  local community tribal members founded Pine Ridge Reservation Emergency Relief. In working in tandem with Oglala Sioux Tribe Emergency Management,  our organization works hard with the help of our members and volunteers to help individuals in our area. Our work is dedicated to funding and delivering charitable services and goods. We strive to inspire and improve the lives of those who need assistance in times of emergencies and natural disasters. Get in touch to learn how you can make a difference at our Emergency Relief Organization.


Pine Ridge Reservation Emergency Relief

Our Emergency Relief Organization helps raise funds through various individual donors and partners. This organization was created in response to the devastating winter storm Ulmer and flooding after the snow quickly melted. In addition, there is now a water main break leaving seven communities without access to water. We would love for you to get involved with Pine Ridge Reservation Emergency Relief. We depend on your support in order to improve the emergency response for our 50+ sub-communities on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Join us today to learn all about volunteering and donating options.
