  • A New Affiliate in Big Sky Country

    Executive Director Sharon Odden.
    Welcome, Family Promise of Great Falls, our fifth Affiliate in the state of Montana.

    The city of Great Falls is not named for any one waterfall but rather for five in succession. The cascades led to its development as a city, as dams would provide ready power and made Great Falls a principal center of industry for the second half of the 20th century. Industry has waned and Malmstrom Air Force Base has shrunk, causing Great Falls’ economy to remain weak. In 2014, 318 students were identified as homeless in the school district—one in 36.

    The need is great--Columbia has no shelters that can take in older boys and men. In the more affluent of Richland County’s two school districts, one in 750 children is classified as homeless. In the other, there are 400 children without homes.
