Family Promise… entering a new era

REFLECTION ON OPENING OUR DOORS AT THE MEADOWLARK

Terry Burke, Family Promise Advisory Team

On Mother’s Day on May 13, 2012, Family Promise of Missoula opened their doors bringing
hope to families experiencing homelessness; to regain their housing, their independence, and their dignity. A special thanks to the dedicated team from Missoula who laid the groundwork for Family Promise.

In 2013, Missoula Interfaith Collaborative (MIC) formed to strengthen community organizations, generate leaders, and foster meaningful relationships as they act for the common good. In 2016, Family Promise of Missoula merged with MIC to work together and leverage their strengths.

In August 2019, the YWCA and MIC broke ground for the Meadowlark to provide critical support and shelter for victims of domestic violence and homeless families.

Family Promise, since 2012, has served up to 4 families at a time and now, in collaboration with
the YWCA, will be able to serve 31 families. Additionally the YWCA will house up to
13 households fleeing domestic violence at the Meadowlark. We, the volunteers, the local
congregations, and the community partners, have come together to make a difference. On Mother’s Day, 2021, our Family Promise families will spend their first night in the Family Housing Center… a new era for Family Promise. 

Thank you Missoula for all your support in making this a reality!
