I was a federal employee (BIA) for many years in another state. As I neared retirement I realized that I really wanted to go home – to the Pine Ridge Reservation. A relative put me in touch with the OST Partnership for Housing and they started working with me on my application.
I now live in a nice, new, two-bedroom home. It’s in a mixed community of low rent housing and mortgage owners.
The neighborhood is Fraggle Rock and my home overlooks Pine Ridge Village. The Partnership is developing the center lot into a park where kids can play and families can gather.
It is good to be home.

The assistance they provided me was crucial in keeping me and my family warm and dry during the winter. They assisted me with all the material to redo my roof on my trailer home and to seal it with weatherproof because it was leaking in many areas. I was also given all the insulation and house wrap to insulate and seal the bottom of my house. All of the insulation was missing between my floor joists. I was also given enough skirting to skirt my house and keep animals out and, more importantly, the cold wind.
I am positive all the assistance I received to keep out the rain and cold air greatly reduced the cost to keep in heated and warm this winter.
Yours is a great program and your help was greatly appreciated.
