Head of Spirit Lake social services staff resigns: Official says recruitment to reservation is impossible
FORT TOTTEN — The head of the Spirit Lake Nation’s embattled social services program has resigned after just six months on the job.
Robert O’Keefe said it’s been next to impossible to recruit social workers to the reservation south of Devils Lake.
“I came out here to kind of catch up the social services, clean up some of the areas that hadn’t been taken care of so well, and found out that staff is kind of the No. 1 problem,” he said Friday.
