Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to get people back on their feet in their community in the ways of getting housing, plugging in to a local church, rebuilding the bridges that have been burned in their lives with family and friends, plugging them in with mental health and substance abuse issues etc all in the name of helping them rebuild a stable life outside of our facilities.

Our three main aims have been to "Attain stable and consistent funding", "Develop highly qualified staff to meet operational needs", and to "Encourage an environment that fosters the health, safety, and spiritual growth of staff and residents". These are all ingredients is how we can accomplish our main goals.

At the Great Falls Rescue Mission (GFRM) we have many long term staff that hold together the institutional knowledge and experience necessary to provide a foundation even as we experience rapid and varied changes internally and externally. The people we have help to bring up the future leaders of our organization so that we can sustain our mission and vision.

Our newest large accomplishment has been operating a family shelter where homeless people with children reside. Going through the process of raising the money for the building was a feat, and then learning as a team how to operate a shelter with adults and children on a large scale was another. In the more than 3 years we have been operating the new shelter we've learned more about what works and what doesn't to move people on and out into a stable living situation, where making sure children are cared for is part of the equation.
We're are now working on some organizational changes that will help us focus on our core operations more and trim the extra so that we can become better at what we do well. Also on the horizon is better development of job training resources for our residents and transitional services so that they don't just go from living in the shelter to out on their own, but rather the GFRM keeping a connection with those who have just moved out and still need some supportive services to maintain their stability and successful outcomes.
