Volunteers are often the lifeblood of a disaster recovery effort.  Following the Souris River flooding, volunteers have already helped countless families return to their flood-damaged homes.  But the same housing shortage that is affecting displaced residents has limited the number of volunteers that can come in to the area and help.  On the grounds of Our Savior's Lutheran Church in south Minot, a unique solution to that problem has sprung up in the form of Hope Village.

They don't appear on any maps, but following the 2011 Souris River flood, there are three new communities in Ward County.  De Sour Valley Heights, Virgil Workman Village and Recovery Village are group housing sites built under the supervision of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) at the request of FEMA.  The sites are filled with manufactured homes provided by FEMA, supplementing hundreds more that sit near flooded residences or in previously existing manufactured home parks.
