Dickinson’s sober living home for women has been serving the Southwest region for three years.
Now, they’re looking to expand.
On Wednesday night at the Grand Dakota Ramada in Dickinson, North Dakota’s First Lady Kathryn Helgaas Burgum was the keynote speaker for Hope’s Landing Saint Patty’s Day “Sober Party fundraiser“.
One of the goals is to raise money to open a sober living home for men, along with help cover operational cost and needs for the women at the sober living home in Dickinson.
More than 200 people attended the event and took part in a silent auction and raffle.
Kayleen Wardner, the Ex. Dir of Hope’s Landing, said she also wants to get the word out to the community that there is someplace for people to go, who are dealing with addiction.
“Our sober living home is the only one in Southwest North Dakota. The alcohol and addiction problems are without end. We would like people to know that we are a safe accountable place for people to heal,. “ said Wardner.
She also said Hope’s Landing has offered assistance to 40 women since it opened.
Last year’s Saint Patty’s Day “Sober Party fundraiser“ raised about $8,000.
