DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — A group aiming to tackle the problem of homelessness in Dickinson is opening a transitional living home.
The Southwest Homeless Coalition plans to develop the facility for families in need of a temporary home in a house donated by the city. The city bought two homes north of City Hall in August.
The Dickinson Press reports that the coalition has started work on policies and procedures, from how tenants will be chosen to who will monitor the home. The city is making necessary home repairs, covering the cost of insurance and also contributing another $15,000 to address homelessness in the city.
No date has been set for when the home will be ready for a family.
