Homeless people weren’t always homeless — the majority of us are just a paycheck or two away from being in Mark’s shoes.

Mark came to us in May in need of housing. Mark is a student who is studying to be an IT and working at Staples. He was sleeping in his car for some time and wanted to get an apartment. Mark came into see us at 549-HOPE and we talked about the situation, we discovered that he had an unpaid bill. We helped him get the bill paid so that it would eliminate barriers and put extra money in his pocket towards housing.

Mark has put all the hard work into finding a place that he can enjoy with his children. Mark worked with us not only to get the bill paid, but also to work with another organization who paid his deposit and some rent. He has been referred to River of Life, where they have helped him with much needed furniture items.  Mark was a joy to work with and is now referring others to us.

Thank you Mark and God Bless You!

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

Temporary SOS Space for the Homeless

TSOS is Changing Lives

Travis Beam has been couch surfing around town for the past three years, “it doesn’t matter what your story is, what you’ve been through, who you are.”

Beam says he aged out of the foster care system in 2017 and was left with nowhere to go.

But things are looking up, “everything couldn’t be going better for me,” Beam said.

He currently, lives at the Temporary Safe Outdoor Space, “there couldn’t be a better place for you if you’re homeless,” he continued.

He says he’s been offered a second job and had a housing voucher approved through the Missoula Housing Authority.

“I’ll be in my own place for the first time in my entire life that I can call my own home. That in and of itself is worth it.”
