“I can’t say enough good things about this center because they make these kids successful. They help them believe in themselves.”
The Cheyenne River Indian Outreach (CRIO) mission is to eradicate violence and oppressive practices by supporting and empowering individuals, families and communities to promote justice, social change and non-violence.
Founded by the Congregation of the Priests of the Sacred Heart (CPOSH) in 1982, Cheyenne River Indian Outreach upholds the vision of CPOSH founder Fr. Leo John Dehon.
Fr. Dehon was committed to serving the poor, meeting people’s physical and spiritual needs through social service and helping individuals live better lives.
His caring beliefs are expressed through Cheyenne River Indian Outreach’s passionate dedication to providing needed services to Native American people living in the Cheyenne River Reservation area.
