Our rural outreach program serves a five-county region in southeast South Dakota including:

    •  Minnehaha
    •  McCook
    •  Lincoln
    •  Turner
    •  Union

An advocate will come to your community and assist with emergency shelter, protection orders, medical advocacy, and safety planning; accompany you to court proceedings; and help provide you with local resources and referrals. 

You do not have to face this alone.
