Empowerment has equipped families and Missoula citizens to overcome difficult times and build a stronger and more fulfilling life.
We’re a group of people from all different backgrounds who have come together to build relationships, learn about each other, and work together for the common good.
We believe that by getting to know each other better, we can start to see that we share more similarities than differences. And when we work together, we can accomplish amazing things.
These are a few of our long-running programs that have become staples in our community, continuing our goal to effect social change.
Understanding and addressing homelessness on an individual, and organizational level.
A coordinated effort to identify and act on issues pressuring our lives, using the skills and practices of community organizing.
Missoula Interfaith Collaboratives (MIC) is a busy place. Lawyers, teachers, therapists, young adults, retired citizens, mothers, fathers, social workers, and medical professionals all take time out of their busy schedules to offer their time and services.
These volunteers are essential to the work of MIC, which is dedicated to changing lives. The volunteers provide important services to the community, including food preparation and delivery, legal aid, counseling, and career guidance. They also serve as mentors and role models for the people they help. In addition to their dedication to MIC’s mission, the volunteers also bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the organization. Their skills and expertise are invaluable assets that help MIC continue its vital work in the community.
All congregations and community organizations will have the ability, respect, and trust to work together.
