There has been a lot of attention regarding Minot's abandon flood properties, better known as zombie homes.
Some people have demanded these homes be cleaned up, but for legal reason, the City of Minot can often not intervene.
That's one reason why a group of church's are stepping up.
5 different religious denominations, from all around the region, hope to help home owners who haven't or simply can't find a way to finish their new homes.
Bob Lower of Dakota United Methodist Disaster Response says these efforts made by the churches are hands on, and personal.
(Bob Lower, Disaster Response Man) "You go back in the history of this flood, right away, there was early church involvement. A bunch of us got together and had a discussion about setting aside all our differences as churches and the different theologies we have, and just focus on those who need help."
In the times of Minot's Hope Village the crew had around 100 work volunteers, today they have 5 crews of ten.
