Missoula Homeless Shelter Boasts Shelter for Homeless

The Poverello Center in Missoula, MT is known for being a shelter for the homeless. Their recent move to a residential area was a shock for those who recently purchased homes near the new location. 

If that wasn't brazen enough, The Poverello Center is now advertising that they're able to provide warmth and shelter for the homeless, a feat that should be required of any homeless shelter. They're generous enough to allow homeless people to stay until up to 10 p.m. and at that point, they'll be bussed to the Salvation Army if they don't have a bed available.

To make maters worse for the homeless, getting to the Salvation Army just got more arduous. Mountain Lion buslines used to provide shelter at their transfer center and then provided a ride to the Salvation Army. Just as the Poverello Center's new protocol goes into effect, Mountain Lion is changing their protocol and no longer offering that bus after Thursday. The homeless now have to journey over and catch a bus at 8:45 p.m. 

Grand Admiral John Engen hasn't been reached for comment on the upcoming changes that are making the lives of the Missoula homeless population worse. More on tihs as it develops.
