Everyone Needs a
place to call home

There is a need for individuals to have a safe place to sleep at night in order to feel secure and encouraged in every other aspect of life. Stable housing provides improved outcomes surrounding employment, health, education, and more.

At F5 Project, we provide transitional housing solutions for individuals who are in varying points in their lives. The houses at F5 Project are meant to be your home, like any other house, but complete with supportive roommates and involvement in the F5 Program.

The transitional living homes of F5 Project support all pathways to recovery, such as but not limited too: 12 Step, Faith-based, Smart Recovery, Refugee Recovery, Medicated Assisted Treatment, Peer Recovery Support - you name it! F5 Project cheerleads for our participants while we assist them in identifying what pathway works for them, and supporting them along the way.





We meet individuals where they’re at: prisons, jails, recovery centers, etc. and help educate them on the resources they’ll need once they leave that facility



When an individual is in need of housing, they can come to us. If the F5 Housing Program isn’t a good fit, we’ll work alongside individuals to get them connected to other housing options that fits their income, background, and credit requirements.



As participants move through the F5 Housing Program, life begins to feel more normal. Individuals are encouraged to continue to build supportive relationships and healthy habits. Once an individual graduates from the F5 Housing Program, we work alongside them to find stable, long-term housing as they continue their journey and create the life they want to lead.

Support for housing

F5 Project is a provider of the Recovery Housing Assistance Program (RHAP).


RHAP is a North Dakota state-funded option for individuals wanting to initiate and sustain recovery efforts in a safe, stable living environment. This program pays up to 12 weeks of recovery housing expenses for eligible, enrolled individuals.

If you are wanting to learn more about the program, or to apply for the program - please email us at housing@F5project.org.

Our housing program cost participants $640 per month which covers program fees and living costs. There is assistance available.

Our housing is meant to serve as transitional housing where participants can live for six months to one year. After that, participants receive a certificate of completion and assistance in finding full-time, stable housing.

We believe that good intent and honest communication are the foundation to both your success and the success of the F5 Project. That is why we have a list of guidelines and agreements for our housing program. To live in our houses, individuals must be sober for at least 30 days before they live in one of our houses. A full list of guidelines can be found here.

Our application process must be completed online. Once an application is completed, your application will be reviewed. If approved, you’ll be put on a waiting list and notified when housing becomes available.

Once a certificate of completion is obtained, residents seeking assistance in finding a new home can apply with Goldmark, who partners with us in finding suitable living arrangements for the candidate. F5 staff will continue to check in with former residents to ensure they continue to live their best lives even after exiting the F5 Housing Program.

We have male housing programs in five different cities: Bismarck, ND; Grand Forks, ND; Fargo, ND; Minot, ND; and Moorhead, MN.

We have a women's housing program available in Fargo, ND.
