First Families Now is dedicated to providing vital necessities to children and families in geographically isolated, high need communities throughout Pine Ridge Reservation. We strive to bring hope to families by providing clothing, food, heating assistance, hygiene and health products. We also offer a variety of community activities with a cultural foundation.



On behalf of First Families Now we would like to give a tremendous heartfelt THANK YOU to our nearby family and friends for coming to our aid and making sure the FFN Staff were safe and for helping to contain the fire. Huge Thank you to the OST Fire Department (45 miles away) for getting here so quickly and saving the center.

We will move forward the best we can, still continuing our future plans for helping our families here on the Pine Ridge Reservation.

Please bear with us as we heal and rebuild.
