BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The former junior high school in Mandan has been donated to the Mother Teresa Outreach nonprofit and will be converted into 62 low-income apartments for the working poor, at a cost of at least $7.5 million.

The building also will have outreach services including mentoring, life skills training, parenting classes, day care, basic medical care, counseling, spiritual support, citizenship classes, spiritual support and English classes. It’s expected to open within a year.

Mother Teresa Outreach is an arm of Spirit of Life Catholic Church. Church Monsignor Chad Gion says religious affiliation will not be one of the criteria for families who stay there.

Mandan’s new middle school opened in 2008, replacing the old building that is more than 100 years old.
