Meet Mel, 88 years old, and homeless in Montana…

As a baker and a cook for 30 years, Melvin’s always worked with his hands. With the minimal Social Security Mel gets each month, it’s left him in a place to choose homelessness — he’s been camping for the past three years. Melvin is an amazing man who has had some rough times and lived through a horrible season in his life. But no matter the circumstantial evidence, he’s not a lost soul or one of the forgotten. His joy is contagious and it’s our joy to help Melvin (and continue to help him) in meeting his daily needs while working toward a more permanent solution.  Mel’s story is symbolic of hundreds of others like him in our region.  Will you partner with us to Help People, Restore Hope and Change Lives?

Homeless people weren't always homeless -- the majority of us are just a paycheck or two away from being in Mel's shoes.

Many homeless people want to get back on their feet.

The rivers and mountains aren't the only reason we live here. Montana has heart. People like Mel have stories -- and often it is not too difficult to see ourselves in pieces of those stories.
