Support a Family

Often times, the medical treatment a guest’s family experiences can become a financial burden. The cost for a family to stay in a hotel in Bismarck-Mandan for a night exceeds $100. As traumatic situations occur and length of time is unknown, the families could be burdened with lodging expenses for 1 –6 weeks. This time period could easily surpass $5000 with traditional options of staying at local hotels.

Tracy’s Sanctuary House may be the only option for families experiencing financial hardship in the area. While many guests do make donations to help cover the costs associated with their stay, some are able to only make a small contribution.

In order to not turn people away, we need to secure funding that is allocated for families facing financial hardship. Sponsoring a family is an exceptional way to directly impact someone’s life for the better. Sponsorship levels include the following:

  • $50 = 1 night lodging
  • $100 = 2 nights lodging
  • $250 = 5 nights lodging
  • $500 = 10 nights lodging
  • $1,000 = 20 nights lodging

Please be a part of this mission by donating online or by contacting Tracy’s Sanctuary House at 701-258-5889.
