In loving memory of Mel...

Melvin was a baker and a cook for 30 years. He lived through a horrible season in his life that left him in a place to choose homelessness. Melvin, an amazing man who’s smile and joy was always contagious to all those he met along the way. He sought help through Hope Rescue Mission in his time of need.

 

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.

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.”
