- “I moved to Spearfish about two years ago and had no resources for food or fuel to get back and forth to work, and no church family to support me. I not only found those resources through SOS, I also found a friend who is always there and ready to listen or talk. Had it not been for SOS and what they do, I would not have had food through the winter or a warm place to stay. Thank you sincerely for all you have done and continue to do.”
- “I appreciate SOS because they helped me when I didn’t know who to turn to. The staff was so kind and compassionate and gave me so many resources. I wouldn’t be in my apartment without SOS helping me. Thank you all.”
- “I appreciate Northern Hills SOS because I was a single mom with a six-month-old trying to make ends meet without child support. I was referred by SOS to several places to get help for gas and diapers. It meant the world to me because I felt overwhelmed and worried, and these things helped out a lot. I also appreciated having someone not judge me and showing me compassion.”
