New Family Rooms Available at Great Falls Rescue Mission

Posted: Updated:

Affordable rent is allowing the Great Falls Rescue Mission to move their administrative offices next door, opening space for the additional 6 family rooms which can sleep nearly 30 more people in the women's building.  Twenty bunk beds, mattresses, and construction costs were all covered thanks to a $20,000 grant from a private foundation.

The additional space is sorely needed.  The rescue mission had to turn away 40 families in April because there was just no where to put them.  Jim McCormick, Development Director at the mission, says, "family is the largest growing segment of homelessness. . .  The women and family center has been pretty much full since it was opened 6 years ago".

In addition to a roof over your head and a bed to sleep in, you get three meals a day and all at no cost.  Other expansion projects are in the works including a dorm room for single women and a dorm for families, a Humble Hearts Recovery meeting room, and expanding the chapel in the men's center.
