GRAND FORKS - Northlands Rescue Mission is looking for the best way to care for the community.

On Thursday, Northlands is hosting a forum, where they'll bring in other social service programs, so they can discuss how to help the homeless as the weather gets colder.

Northlands is encouraging community members to join the meeting.

One employee tells us they're hoping to give people in the community some practical ways to help in case they see anyone out in the cold this winter.

"It's just a way to engage the community because homelessness isn't just a Mission problem or just another agency problem, it's a community problem, and so we want to work on this as a community and invite people in to be part of the solution,” Northlands Rescue Mission Executive Director Sue Shirek said.

The forum runs from 9 to 10 a.m. Thursday, in the Northlands Rescue Mission Dining room.
