MDS update

There is an urgent need for all skills of construction workers in Minot, North Dakota where many, many families are still in temporary housing and waiting for assistance to rehab their homes. The time for families to stay in FEMA housing is drawing toward to a close. Among the families waiting to return home are the following:

– A family with 4 children, including a set of 20 month old twins, a 5 year old and a 3 year old. Two of these children have special medical needs.

– A three generation household where the father has a critical chronic illness and therefore is no longer able to rehab his own home. There are two elementary aged school children in this family. The mother is now the sole financial provider but works on the home in the evenings and on weekends.

– A family with two school aged children whose father has often “been the first to help others”. The father recently had a medical event and his physician advised him to not do any construction work. The parents had rehabbed her mother’s home before doing their own.

– One rehab currently under way is the home of a paraplegic who has mucked out his own home and has begun to rehab his own home. He has made a heroic effort at rehabbing his own home but can use some volunteer labor to give him a boost.

– In addition to the above MDS Minot is currently working on 6 other homes and there are many, many other families on the case management list waiting for volunteer labor to assist them in getting their homes repaired.

Please call Sarah Yoder at 1-800-241-8111 to schedule.

Are you interested in helping to cook, serve, or clean up at a Widow’s Banquet? Volunteers are needed to help at the Arborg banquet on Oct 30th and also at the Fisher Branch banquet on Oct. 25th. Please call Elmer & Louella Bartsch @ 364-2795.
