Rescue mission helps homeless family

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS - Robyn Pepion is just one of many mothers currently staying at The Great Falls Rescue Mission.

Pepion explained that it was only a $200 late rent payment that  caused her  and her four sons homelessness.

“It's a nice little break from here to find out what I'm going to do.  Just being older now with my kids I had to consider our future so we came back and I knew that we were going to come back to the rescue mission.” Pepion said.  

THERESE MARTINEZ IS THE WOMEN AND FAMILIES SUPERVISOR in charge of accepting families into the shelter.

We have no maximum stay, we don't say after so many days or after so many months they have to leave. As long as they're working on their goals they can stay here as long as they're moving through the program.  Some of the kids here need to get into schools and that's where Lee Houle comes in. We move forward, we work very hard with our sister agencies, and we're very blessed in Great Falls to have that ability. We have wonderful sister agencies if we need things, opportunities are there if they need medications we have several opportunities.

Pepion says her family has had a lot of time to bond since being at the Mission.

“There's a lot of stability and security there that I wasn't expecting and so in a way we got a new life and they think that's kinda funny.” Pepion said.
