Keep Our Residents Warm with Housed Great Falls

Housed Great Falls (HGF) is a grassroots 501(c)(3) nonprofit that aims to provide missing scaffolding in Great Falls to unhoused and unsheltered community members.  Their long term goal is a transitional housing community, with the Cold Weather Drop In Center as an immediate response to a need in our community.

The Cold Weather Drop In Center is a safe, evening space for people who are experiencing homelessness or are stranded during the cold winter months.  When temperatures are forecast to be a ‘feels like’ 25 or lower, the center will be open between 5:00 and 9:30 PM. Overnight service at the Rescue Mission opens at 10:00 PM. The Drop In is being hosted by the First United Methodist Church (FUMC) and is being organized by volunteers from Housed Great Falls (HGF) and relies on volunteers from the community to open.  The main meal is provided by volunteers, with additional snacks and beverages provided by HGF and FUMC.  They only open if they have a minimum of three volunteers to maintain a safe environment, so volunteers are never working alone. A volunteer familiar with the Drop-In or a member of HGF can orient you to the responsibilities of helping for a night (or partial shifts; the first or second half of the evening if that is all you are able to do).

You can volunteer to work the drop-in or bring a meal via their online sign up with the following link:

HGF can be reached via email at or via mail at PO Box 3592, Great Falls MT 59403. Work # is 406-455-2367/Cell phone # is 573-822-6171 (Michael). Please reach out to them regarding any questions or concerns you might have about volunteering.
