The Native American Development Center was awarded a $50,000 grant in September to begin serving support services to Native Americans living in the Bismarck metro area.
As a result, Tuesday night support groups, called “Restoring the Circle,” will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. every Tuesday in the Fort Union East and West Conference Rooms at the Great River Energy, 1611 East Century Ave. in Bismarck. This is an outreach program to address the need for support services to adults who are in recovery or in a cultural, socio-economic life transition,such as formerly incarcerated men and women, those in recovery or residents desiring to make a connection with other Native Americans in the community.
Transportation will be provided to adults living in Ruth Meiers’ family and men’s’ homeless shelters in Bismarck. A childwatch for youth ages 1 and older will be provided. A meal with coffee will be provided every week.
The goal is to bring stability, security and to improve the lives of all adults and their families living in the Bismarck metro area.
