Thank you for giving hope in 2016!

It takes all of us to bring real change and build a culture of hope. Thank you to our monthly partners and those who gave a one-time gift in 2016. Your ongoing contributions are bringing lasting change and making a tangible difference in the lives of our Native American youth.

It all starts with hope.

Native Hope, as the name suggests, believes that hope is at the foundation of real change. Hope opens the door to possibility and dreams. If we are going to see changes in the culture, it’s going to start with hope.

Native Hope is based in Chamberlain, South Dakota. In South Dakota, there are 9 reservations where some of the highest poverty in our nation exists. We have a journey ahead of us, and we will start right here in our own backyard with the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota tribes of South Dakota.
