Pine Ridge, South Dakota

Disaster Date: 08/12/2016
Project Status: Active
Project Needs: Building Homes
What Happened:

Straight line winds, tornadoes, hailstorms, and floods severely damaged or destroyed hundreds of homes during May and June, 2015, and again in September, 2016. This loss of housing compounded an already existing shortage of good housing for residents of the Pine Ridge reservation.

What MDS Will Do:

MDS is partnering with Pine Ridge Long Term Recovery Committee to build four new homes in the spring and summer of 2017. Building materials are funded by a coalition of agencies. MDS accommodations are in mobile homes and trailers on the outskirts of Pine Ridge.

The Pine Ridge project hosted the Summer Youth Program (SYP) on July 2-28. The youth groups worked on home repairs and helped build new homes in the community.
