Mitakuye is Lakota for “My Relatives” and represents the Lakota philosophy that we are all related. The mission of The Mitakuye Foundation (formerly known as The Mitakupi Foundation) is to create programs for reservation youth and support the work of existing programs that give reservation youth the same support and opportunities that other children in America have – the first and foremost being hope. The social, economic, and political issues that the First Peoples of this land face are overwhelming, but focusing on the youth is a way to start the process of healing. All it takes is one generation to stop the cycle of despair and plant the seeds of positive change. This is that generation!

The Legacy Housing Foundation was created to help fund and provide sound solutions for stronger and better affordable housing communities. By working together with other organizations, the foundation strategically works to address gaps in community resources and other unmet needs. The Good Times Community Block Party is designed specifically to meet the unique needs of the lowest income residents living in affordable housing by bringing them everyday essentials—and a positively good time—just when they need it the most. Toward the end of the month, some residents may find themselves having to do without the basic household items that many take for granted such as soap, toothpaste, shampoo and toilet paper. With the ‘Good Times’ truck, these supplies literally roll in just in time and are distributed during a fun and festive block party. With a prize wheel, music and games, the Good Times Rolling Block Party brightens spirits and lightens the load for people who are reluctant to accept charity because of the stigma of need.
