Wolf Run Village and Wolf Pup Daycare Needs Your Help


Workers demolish the trucking building where the new Wolf Run Village will be built.

Wolf Run Village and Wolf Pub daycare sitting at the corner of 3rd Street SE and 4th Ave S in Watford City, this 42 unit community will soon be home to many service personnel and their families.

Three participating agencies: McKenzie County, City of Watford City, McKenzie County School District # 1 and Champion Home Builders continue to plug away on the completion of the modular apartment units with the hopes of some of the units opening in August. This will allow teachers to move out of the trailers behind the elementary school, giving them a more permanent and affordable place to live before the school year starts. The rest of the apartments, driveways and landscape should be finished in the fall.

The North Dakota Housing Finance Authority has also granted money through the Law Enforcement Pilot Program to house local law enforcement personnel – including Watford City PD, McKenzie County Sheriffs and North Dakota State Troopers.

The people who will benefit from Wolf Run Village are teachers, paramedics, police officers, firemen/women and other service personnel who are currently living in basement apartments, mobile homes and in RVs around the community.

Train depot building is being moved off the property. The depot’s new home will be in Heritage Park.

The state-of-the-art Wolf Pup Daycare Center will be open to the public and is expected to open in early 2014. It’ll be complete with a full commercial kitchen, an indoor multipurpose play space for cold weather days and a large play area in the backyard.

In order to keep the rates on the apartments low and daycare rates affordable, Wolf Run Village and Wolf Pup Daycare Center needs your help. They are currently accepting contributions for construction costs, daycare startup costs, furniture purchases, playground equipment, books, supplies and many other things that’ll help make Wolf Pup Daycare Center a playful and stimulating place for children.

If you are interested in making a contribution, please contact Katie Walters at kwalters@bakkenhousing or call 701-484-1975.
