New Poverello Center Shelter Opens in Missoula

The Poverello Center, Inc. has opened a new, right-sized emergency shelter at 1110 West Broadway that offers services to people experiencing homelessness and poverty in Missoula and surrounding areas.

The new facility is ADA accessible, with 115 beds. The Poverello Center’s emergency soup kitchen continues to offer three meals a day, sack lunches for clients needing food to take to work, and a food pantry for those housed but precariously making rent.

The Homeless Outreach Program continues to extend its services to men, women, and youth on the streets, offering basic necessities such as food and blankets, while building relationships to aid people in accessing social services in the local area. The Homeless Outreach Program also builds relationships with community partners and neighbors, doing outreach on the streets daily and responding to a non-emergency hotline, 493-7955.

The Housing Montana Heroes Program helps guide men and women veterans, housed in semi-private rooms within the emergency shelter. The Housing Montana Heroes Program offers case management to veterans for up to 24 months as they access social services in the community and skill-building and other services within the Poverello Center.
