White Buffalo Calf Woman Society


White Buffalo Calf Woman Society (WBCWS) was the first domestic abuse shelter for women of color and Native American women in the nation. Started in 1977 on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation, WBCWS also provides advocacy for victims of sexual assault, transitional housing for women in need of relocation for safety, and advocacy through the criminal justice process, including protection orders. Operating in one of the poorest counties of our nation, WBCWS provides education about domestic and sexual violence in the communities on the reservation, support groups, financial and parenting education for victims and re-education groups for perpetrators. 95% of the work done by WBCWS is funded through state and federal grants. However grants do not cover many operating expenses such as annual audits, building maintenance, renovations, and website development, hosting and maintenance. Activities like a Christmas party for those living in the shelter must be funded by staff members.
