Sexual Assault Advocacy Services – The WBCWS promises an advocate will be on call 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Our advocates provide support to victims and families from the time they arrive in the emergency room, and at any time throughout their lives. Our advocates ensure a proper change of clothes, help victims understand safety plans and legal processes and provide transportation to any current and or future medical appointments.
Youth activities – Basketball is king on the Rosebud Reservation, and the WBCWS is sure to include the activity as often as possible when planning youth activities. Dozens of teams showed up for the Youth Appreciation Day, and dozens more crowded the pavement during our July, Block Party. A recent partnership with the Native American Advocacy Program in Winner, S.D. has created more opportunities for the youth to learn about their culture in a safe environment.
Youth Education – The WBCWS shares its knowledge as an integral part of the curriculum at local schools regarding teen dating violence, stalking, and sexual assault to communities in south central South Dakota. WBCWS Project Coordinator for Engaging Men, Sunrise Black Bull and Education and Prevention Director Summer Lunderman visit with students at Todd County schools, St. Francis Indian School, White River school and Little Wound high school.
