Welcome House is a faith-based agency serving homeless individuals and families in the Bismarck/Mandan area. Welcome House provides short-term shelter, assistance in obtaining permanent housing and a variety of supportive services. Welcome House’s emphasis is on providing extensive case management and other supportive services for up to three years to help clients attain and retain permanent housing. Welcome House fills a gap in the community by serving homeless that would not otherwise receive shelter, including two-parent families, families headed by single fathers, and families with teenage males. –http://www.welcome-house.net/about/
