Inspired by the works of Rock the Leaves and other local benefits, a friend of the founder, Stefanie Engstrom, partnered to start a creative way of helping those experiencing homelessness. Through live music and a beard competition, they began to raise awareness about the ever-pressing issue of homelessness in the Minot community and beyond.


“Because of the graciousness of Rock the Leaves Entertainment, the Minot Area Homeless Coalition has been able to continue to provide services to those in need. Truly a blessing.”
— -Louis Mcleod, Director of Minot Area Homeless Coalition
