Beyond Shelter Inc. (BSI), based in Fargo, is a nonprofit developer of affordable housing whose mission is "improving lives and creating communities by developing housing for those most in need." The BSI team is devoted to working with its partners to develop well-designed, sustainable affordable housing that creates a quality environment for residents and enhances the surrounding neighborhood.

By working together and partnering with local communities, local housing authorities, state agencies and other stakeholders, BSI has been very successful in developing quality affordable housing serving communities in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota. To date, BSI has participated in the development of 31 affordable housing projects totaling 845 apartment homes, serving special needs, homeless, senior and family households. These 845 apartment homes provide safe and affordable housing to their residents and help ensure that longtime residents and those on fixed incomes can remain in the communities they call home.

This year BSI is celebrating 15 years of providing affordable housing and working towards breaking ground on 191 apartment homes serving the North Dakota communities of Dickinson, Burlington, Minot and Fargo.
