FARGO — Jail Chaplains Ministry, a non-profit group that minister to inmates in Cass County Jail, cut the ribbon on its first official office space Thursday, Sept. 16.

On top for their ministry, the chaplains also support inmates in their recoveries from addiction and offer weekly Bible studies.

Jail Chaplains' leaders said faith and perseverance helped them to finally get a place they can call their own.

"This is one of those days that we can look back and say this was a milestone, and this is a good chance to thank the community and to thank God for all He's done," said Terinne Berg, a board member of Jail Chaplains.

The new office is located on Westrac Drive in south Fargo.
