The Call to Help for Montana's Homeless

Homelessness has seen a dramatic increase over the last decade, and especially since pandemic restrictions have been lifting slowly. Last year saw a 12% increase in homelessness in Montana, more so for unaccompanied youth: homelessness increased by over 20% for that group.

That means more and more Montanans are seeking help. Answering that call are numerous organizations that have lately been working better collaboratively to improve the range and continuity of services for the homeless.

Click on the podcast to hear first-hand experiences in the effort by Montana’s non-profits to care for the homeless, mentally ill, and others, with Matt Lundgren from the Montana Rescue Mission in Billings, Brayton Erickson, from the Butte Rescue Mission, and Catherine Koenen from the Gianforte Family Foundation.
