F5 Project

F5 Project provides transitional and re-entry support for those who were and are incarcerated before they are released. We pride ourselves on working on the inside to help bridge the community. We believe in meeting the individual where they are at, and that sets us apart from other organizations in the same sector. We believe that meeting the individual where they are at will help with character development, parenting, employment readiness, and social engagement. 

We believe that not only is the person being transformed, but our community as well. That is why we have community meetings where our staff, the people coming out of incarceration and the community can engage one another and destroy stigmas. These connections heal worldviews, families, and communities. As part of the transition and re-entry support, we provide safe and affordable housing with peer mentorship. The peer will help with employment support, positive social networks, and transportation. A peer is defined as someone who was formerly incarcerated that has lived in the shoes of the person they are providing support for.

F5 Project works with the state of North Dakota on the Free Through Recovery program. Free Through Recovery (FTR) is a community-based behavioral health program designed to increase access to recovery support services for individuals engaged with the criminal justice system who have serious behavioral health concerns. Free Through Recovery is a partnership between the Department of Human Services and the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. The mission of Free Through Recovery is to improve healthcare outcomes and reduce recidivism by delivering high-quality community behavioral health services linked with effective community supervision. The goals are to improve engagement in quality services and to provide access to individualized services that are responsive to each person’s specific needs.

F5 Project is proud to be joining the state of North Dakota and the North Dakota Department of Behavioral Health’s newest program, Community Connect. Community Connect helps pregnant women, families, caregivers, and individuals by providing a one-stop entry point for needed services, such as housing, employment, financial, parenting, physical health, and community connections.

F5 Project has homes in Fargo, Grand Forks, Bismarck and Moorhead, MN. We offer care coordination for Free Through Recovery (FTR) and Community Connect and peer support services in Fargo, Grand Forks, Bismarck, Jamestown, Dickinson, Minot, and Williston.

Your Pal Kal

Your Pal Kal is a small organization with a big passion for helping people. I am dedicated to helping people grow their wellness and overcome self-limiting beliefs. I enjoy witnessing people surpass their expectations of what is possible and seeing people radiate that wellness into the world.

As a person that has struggled with addiction, I am familiar with the enormous barriers that people face when working toward positive change. I am here to offer you a partner in navigating those barriers so that you can build a life that you are proud of, a life that you enjoy.

I believe that every person has inherent value, regardless of typical measures of productivity. I want to help you see that value. I will provide referrals for employment, housing, treatment services, peer support, mental health services, support groups, counseling, etc. I have become familiar with the available resources in the area and will partner with you in navigating these resources. I will also help you complete applications, establish transportation options, develop organization skills for success, and build habits for healthy relationships, among other things. Whatever difficulties you are facing today, is what I wish to assist you with. I take pride in the work that I do, and I look forward to growing with you!
