Otto Bremer Trust awards $250,000 grant for expansion of Village services

Tuesday, June 4, 2019

FARGO – The Village Family Service Center has received a $250,000 grant from the Otto Bremer Trust. The funds will offset the cost of building renovations and relocation expenses related to expansion of services at The Village’s new Fargo and Moorhead office locations.

On May 20, The Village opened a new location at 2701 12th Ave. S., Fargo. This office houses its outpatient counselors, Employee Assistance Program counselors, Intensive Outpatient Program for mental health, and First Step Recovery program. This fall, The Village’s Moorhead office will move into a new building at 815 37th Ave. S., which will double the space available for children’s mental health services.

These new locations will expand access to behavioral health services for the Fargo-Moorhead community, including reduced wait times and more integrated care for clients. To access services, call 701-451-4900 or request an appointment online.
