The Great Falls College MSU students are helping keep community members well with a free health day. This state wide event that started right here in Great Falls by Great Falls College MSU students just last year called Project Homeless a program that helps the needy for free.

"So we have invited anyone who is really in need they don't have to be homeless necessarily, they might be having a hard times this year and they need a little uplift with some services and today their free to them," explains Victoria Antonich.

Helping Great Falls MSU is many community volunteers organizations all in one place to give folks information on where they can get assistance.

"We got vendors, we have got our General Clinics, so we are really excited to have that if people are in pain they can come in and have an extraction. We have got a physical therapy assistant program they are doing gate assessments we have Planned Parenthood here they are helping with the navigating of the Affordable Care Act," says Antonich.

Also volunteering are folks from Malmstrom Air Force Base.

"I know we got a lot of Malmstrom Air Force Base volunteers so they are helping with our food and also they are being guides for our guest,"says Antonich.

Also on hand was Planned Parenthood to help folks navigate the Affordable Care Act and to let men know all about their male clinic. Explaining that Planned Parenthood is not just for women.

"I think Project Homeless connect is a great opportunity to reach out to folks who might need some information about we a verity of things they might not know where to get elsewhere. or we just had someone who had a question about the Affordable Care Act," says Jules Shintel with Planned Parenthood.

Great Falls MSU says the program itself is much larger than last year and they plan to continue the good work for years to come.

"We're anticipating to grow from there, I think our goal was about 225, but you know we are really shooting high," says Antonich.
