Mobile Outreach Campaign

Seeds of Eden has a very passionate and aggressive mobile outreach campaign, addressing needs and concerns across the vast spectrum of North and South Dakota prairie, to include our neighbors in Montana very soon. Whether caring for those on tribal lands, in small communities, or on the country-side, we have partnered with professionals and leaders to bring support to areas which are at highest risk for substance abuse and mental health challenges. We have hired a Community Health Navigator and a team of Behavioral Health Specialists to address health disparities and barriers. You may find us supporting a food pantry, distributing Narcan, administering in-home care, visiting the local jail, or ministering at your local church! Whatever the case may be, we want to meet needs and meet people where they are. We also continue to advocate for increased funding and infrastructure to foster a not-for-profit agency w/board of directors to collaborate and cross-system coordinate between tribal leaders and local/county leaders, with the purpose of preventing opioid misuse, homelessness, and opioid overdoses, while also advocating for treatment and recovery support, community-based services, and strategies to abate the opioid epidemic in a cooperative within the community. By communicating, cooperating, and cross-collaborating—our vision is to host regular meetings to discuss current needs, troubleshoot problems, address issues, arrange recovery events, and organize processes to ensure quality service provision in areas of health disparity. We also hope to eliminate the duplication of services in urban areas and provide adequate support to “fill the cracks” in our system. Our efforts aim at uniting the various organizations and entities across the Dakotas—from Sidney to Devils Lake, from Belcourt to McLaughlin–and wherever else we are led.
