One Heart
One Heart, A Place for Hope and Healing is a proposed transformation campus to elevate the human spirit and the spirit of the Rapid City community.  By providing transitional housing and co-locating a variety of services - from addiction and mental health counseling to life skills and job training - we can more efficiently, effectively and collectively help our neighbors without homes move into permanent housing and a better quality of life.  The campus would offer person-centered, trauma-informed, recovery-oriented care; in return, each adult resident would be expected to create a self-directed income plan, housing plan and agree to live clean and sober
