The Fargo Moorhead Economic Development Corporation has developed a "welcome" program. It gives people an overview of what the cities offer.

The program shows potential hires neighborhoods, schools, shopping centers and restaurants.

TIFANIE GELINSKE - FM Dir. of Work Force Development: “Well I think really, it doesn’t matter your communities size at all. Really, it's just about helping new comers make connections. Its about helping people who are not familiar with your community, know what you have.”

The program started in 2007. About ten people use it every month.
