About the Charity


RUTH MEIERS began in 1987, providing shelter services to seven homeless men in Bismarck. Now, RUTH MEIERS provides over 200 shelter beds and 110 affordable housing units, alongside multiple essential services to meet the growing need across the region. What started out as a small shelter almost 30 years ago has now grown into multiple facilities, serving clients through the implementation of a transitional pathway that includes shelter and essential services with the goal of community reintegration.

The DIRT KICKER CHARITY RUN is funded completely by generous sponsors allowing 100% of your registration fee and any additional donations to benefit the Ruth Meiers Hospitality House.
