The Missoula community has an urgent need for a safe place where homeless families and survivors of domestic violence can find shelter and support to get back on their feet. In the coming months, YWCA Missoula, in partnership with Missoula Interfaith Collaborative, will be launching a public campaign to build a new facility that meets this need.
YWCA Missoula’s new facility will be located on West Third Street, near the Good Food Store and Marchie’s Nursery. It will house YWCA Missoula’s programs and offices, an expanded domestic violence shelter, and an emergency housing center for homeless families– all under one roof.
- YWCA’s service center: administrative offices and mission-related programs (including GUTS! and Racial Justice Initiative)
- YWCA’s domestic violence shelter: safe and secure shelter for up to 13 single adults or adults with children fleeing violence
- Family housing center: short term emergency housing for up to 31 homeless families with dependent children, operated in partnership with Family Promise, a program of Missoula Interfaith Collaborative
