A new, centralized office opened by the Oglala Sioux Housing Authority could help to curb housing woes on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, KOTA TV reports.

House Authority Chief Executive Officer Paul Iron Cloud tells the station the reservation needs about 4,000 homes, while his office manages just more than 1,000. It's common for multiple families to share dwellings.
