With support from the community, Project BEE has been empowering members of our community to reach their full potential since 1915. Over the years, we have provided clients with a multitude of opportunities, support, and safe and affordable housing.
Our organization has evolved our programs to provide the support our community needs from us. We were a daycare, provided disaster relief, and women's empowerment classes. Our "Center of Hope" provides emergency shelter and supportive services to women and children who suffer from addiction, mental illness, poverty, and homelessness. We serve adults and children from two Native American tribes as well as residents from Western North Dakota. Additionally, we are recognized as one of the longest standing nonprofits in Minot.
Currently, the Project Bee Emergency Shelter is utilizing hotel vouchers to continue to promote safety during COVID among some of the most vulnerable populations. As in the past, we are continually re-evaluating our programs to meet the needs of our clients. Through partnerships with different organizations, we have expanded our services to include travel and medical assistance, and an outreach program called “fresh start” which provides a shower facility. Our community closet proudly helps community members pick out free career clothing and household necessities. Lastly, we are one of two National Diaper Bank Network accredited diaper banks in the state of North Dakota. We believe these programs assist us in empowering our clients and help them gain a sense of dignity.
