Carrie's Kids will forever be grateful to Trinity Lutheran Church in Bismarck, North Dakota where Carrie's Kids began. Carrie's Kids started during Trinity Lutheran Church's (40 Days of Community) worship campaign in February of 2006. During that campaign the congregation picked an ongoing service project that would affect the area where they live. A Carrie's Kids Task Force was formed to coordinate efforts to impact children/teens who were experiencing homelessness in the Bismarck/Mandan area of North Dakota.
