Community meets to discuss transitional program, F5 Project

The Minot community is working to establish a collaborative effort to help fight the opioid crisis and provide assistance to those transitioning out of confinement.

Health professionals, law enforcement, jail officials, job service representatives, and community members came together in Minot tonight to listen to Adam Martin, founder of the F5 project.
The F5 Project helps coordinate services and mentorship to people coming out of prison, treatment centers, or homeless shelters.
F5 Houses and jail meetings were based in Fargo and spread to Bismarck, Devil’s Lake and parts of Minnesota.
Tuesday night’s meeting was held to learn more about the organization and a potential expansion to the Minot area.

“You never know who might be that resource or who has the ability to find the resources,” Roza Larson, State’s Attorney, said. “There’s lots of grants and lots of people willing to step up and help. It’s just being able to know the right people to reach out to.”

The overall goal is to provide a resource hub for people seeking out jobs, treatment and recovery, or housing options.
