First International Bank & Trust is proud to announce that they have donated $150,000 to the Jeremiah Program. This contribution will be put towards a permanent housing facility in Fargo for low-income women. The funding for this initiative is now in place and ground will be broken next spring for the facility.
The Jeremiah Program plans to build a multi-floor facility, with the top two floors being housing for 20 low-income mothers and their children. The bottom floor will include on-site education for kids. This new campus in Fargo will have an overall positive influence in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
The Jeremiah Program is an organization that helps transition people from poverty to prosperity two generations at a time. The program started in the twin cities 20 years ago and it offers young women the opportunity to have a place to live as they pursue a college degree.
