We are volunteers - survivors ourselves of a loss to suicide as well as community caregivers - who have come together to offer support, guidance, comfort, and assistance to those who have lost a loved one to suicide. Our services are free. To be contacted by an advocacy team member from Rapid City, click here.

As with many organizations, the need for volunteers is great. Our organization is currently in need of volunteers to help with the programs and services that we provide. If you would like to volunteer to help our organization, please contact us or click here to send us a message. Someone will contact you to discuss your time and availability to volunteer.
