Hit, Inc. | 03/6/2012
Mike Remboldt and his staff of more than 500 will soon be moving into a new space. Hit, Incorporated in Mandan is about to move across the interstate into a new 43,000 square foot complex.
"We`ve been in the old Heartview building for about 15 years. And we`ve outgrown it to the point of right now, we have several people who are sharing offices. When we first moved into that building, we were serving about 60 people in our day program. Right now, we`re up to about 125," Remboldt said.
The company formed in 1979 to serve and employ people living with disabilities. In more than 30 years, the nonprofit has steadily grown, allowing for the new $6.2 million project.
"Our board of directors was really committed to trying to design something around the needs of the individuals, so this building is a direct result of that."
Those needs have changed as well. Remboldt says the facility is primarily funded by Medicare, and their demand for service is also rising.
"People want to keep their family members with disabilities at home. So we`re building this to accommodate that. So they can stay here in Mandan or Bismarck."
Once completed, Remboldt says they hope to hire around 25 more staff over the next three years. Construction is scheduled to be finished by the end of June.
