A local non-profit provides sanctuary for families experiencing emergencies

There’s a non-profit in town that supports out of town families during a life threatening crisis.

Tracy’s Sanctuary House offers temporary housing for families experiencing a medical traumatic emergency. 

Families from out of town who use hospitals in Bismarck can stay for free. The organization started in 2005 and it can house up to five families at a time. 

They’ve helped over 3,800 families since opening. Annually 200 families stay at Tracy’s Sanctuary House a year.

“My family started Tracy’s Sanctuary House in memory of my mom. We were in a motor vehicle accident in 2004 outside of Barnesville, Minnesota. She was ejected from the vehicle and in that incident we had a lot of family members travel out to her bedside while she was in an emergency. And we did not have a place to stay, so that is what planted the seed of starting Tracy’s Sanctuary House,” said Kelsey Zottnick, Executive Director at Tracy’s Sanctuary House. 

They will be hosting a Winter White Party on Jan. 31 at the North Dakota Heritage Center. 

All proceeds will go back to Tracy’s Sanctuary House for utilities, mortgage, sponsoring families to stay, and more.
