About Us 


Georgia Little Shield founded the pantry with this vision: that nobody should ever go hungry on the Cheyenne Reservation and that youth grow up to healthy adults without the current scourges of life on the reservation, including suicide, alcoholism
and low educational attainment. We aim to fulfill these goals through partnerships that help people move towards independence, maintain pride and dignity, and realize their potential.

A Good Start

Our first step has been to create a food pantry, which will be followed by youth development projects, including a GED program. Luckily, a modular 40x60 building was donated to us.    

Thanks to the generosity of the Daily Kos community, we have been able to move the trailer to Isabel, hook up the utilities, buy air conditioners, a refrigerator, and office supplies, and then fill it with groceries. 

Because the Tribe saw that we were serious, when we requested money from our Tribal Council for the food pantry, we were notified that we would receive a grant to pay for employees to run the pantry as well as the utilities and some groceries. We will still need donations for enough groceries and the youth program.

We are a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, so your contribution is tax deductible.


Our mission is to provide and coordinate services with courtesy and respect for each other and for the well being and protection of the residents in our community. These services are provided through partnerships that help people move towards independence, maintain pride and dignity and realize their potential.

Our community organization is dedicated to improving the health, educational attainment, human welfare, and opportunities for youth, adults and families in Isabel, as well as overall nutritional welfare


Through collaborative partnerships with families, community, and agency resources, we wish to provide a continuum of supportive human services based on an individualized comprehensive assessment of family strengths and needs. We will strive to:

  • Provide educational, recreational, cultural, health and lifelong learning opportunities for youth and adults;
  • offer educational advancement opportunities for adults and seniors; and 
  • ensure that no one in Isabel or in surrounding areas goes hungry.
  • Provide a low- or no- cost food program and an emergency food program for those without sufficient means, serving approximately 325 families a month.
  • Provide regular weekly recreational and cultural activities to 75 youth, encompassing youth from grade school, middle school, and high school ages, adult recreational and cultural programs for an additional 50 individuals, and health education and services to 300 children and adults.
  • Increase the proficiency of 60 adults in Isabel by making available Lakota as a Second Language, G.E.D., and life skills classes.
