Support Tracy’s Sanctuary House

Give the gift of refuge to someone in need.

Why Give?

Tracy’s Sanctuary House provides temporary lodging for individuals and families facing medical emergencies, treatments, and more. Many families in situations like these are far from home, are scared and exhausted, and desperately need a place for privacy and comfort in times of medical crisis. With support from our community and people like you, we have been able to provide sanctuary to thousands of families in their time of need.

How To Help

Ways To Give


To provide a haven for families and individuals year-round, there are various expenses. From mortgage payments to software, you can help cover necessary operational costs.

Support A Family

Medical treatment and the costs associated with it can become a financial burden for our guests. In fact, the cost for a family to stay in a hotel in Bismarck-Mandan for one night exceeds $100 – with extended treatment/stays costing families thousands of dollars just for lodging.

By sponsoring a family, your donation helps to provide refuge for families facing financial hardship.

Sponsorship Levels
  • $50 = 1 Night Lodging
  • $100 = 2 Nights Lodging
  • $250 = 5 Nights Lodging
  • $500 = 10 Nights Lodging
  • $1,000 = 20 Nights Lodging

Supplies Wishlist

While monetary donations help cover some of the higher costs associated with running Tracy’s Sanctuary House, donating essential supplies is a great way to ensure our guests always have what they need.

For supply donation drop-offs, we ask that you please contact us to schedule a time and day in advance.
