Since our inception we have been proud to help support a variety of projects in Native American communities.
Donors like you help provide the funding necessary to sustain these projects.
There are a variety of ways in which your donation makes a difference! When you make a tax-exempt donation towards SHC's mission, your funds will go directly towards helping Native American Communities & Culture and Community Outreach Projects.
Native American communities are geographically located throughout North and South America. Each of these tribes has a unique cultural way of life connected to their original lands. Spirit Horse Connection aims to help take care of the needs that these communities may have that often go overlooked. This includes providing seasonal resources, home repairs needed due to harsh land environments, and assistance related to personal, family, and community health and wellness.
Spirit Horse Connections
Covid-19 has had a disproportionately devastating impact across the nation's Native American reservations, particularly on the Pine Ridge Reservation. There is a housing shortage, and extended families are sometimes living together in crowded conditions. Food commodities have been reduced in recent years, and now grocery prices are going up. Because of the poverty and trauma of colonization, there are many preexisting conditions among the people. Tragically, many are dying of Covid-19 and many more are at risk of freezing to death - especially elders.
Spirit Horse Connection is working with the Pine Ridge Reconciliation Center and Sacred Way Sanctuary to provide sandwiches, diapers, masks, and support other basic needs, along with cash assistance with energy bills.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation here to support these efforts.
We would like to extend a special thanks to Ford Motor Company for donating 27,360 masks to Pine Ridge Reservation.
