Housing is a human right. And yet, many families in our community—whether due to loss of employment, unaffordable rent or domestic violence—find themselves without a safe place to live. Missoula Family Housing Center, jointly operated by YWCA Missoula and MIC’s Family Promise Program, provides short-term emergency housing to families experiencing homelessness along with the support and resources to move into permanent homes of their own. This service is one wing of The Meadowlark, the new home of all YWCA Missoula programs.
Our priority at the Missoula Family Housing Center is to move homeless families into permanent housing as quickly as possible. The YWCA Rapid Re-Housing Program offers funding for security deposits and rental assistance for up to one year. YWCA case managers work with participants to locate available rentals, communicate with landlords, and address housing barriers.

This 18-month program helps homeless survivors of domestic violence with children work toward self-sufficiency and independence. Participants in the program live in one- or two-bedroom apartments while they work with YWCA staff to develop life skills, heal from trauma, obtain permanent housing, and achieve economic security.
