Community Discussion Set For The Poverello Center


The Poverello Center needs a new building to shelter  the homeless  and serve meals more efficiently. Originally the Board was going to purchase the Trail’s End property on West Broadway but due to concerns expressed by Westside neighbors Mayor John Engen put that plan on hold. The City of Missoula and the Poverello Center Board of Directors will host a community discussion about the future location of the Poverello Center tomorrow night . Mayor Engen says the Trail’s End property will continue to be an option but not the only option for the new center.

The  meeting  will go from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. (tomorrow) at St. Patrick Hospital, Conference Rooms 2 and 3. Mayor Engen says childcare will be provided and everyone is invited to the discussion. Following the meeting, a working group representing diverse stakeholders will work to identify ways to address community concerns and to evaluate potential sites using the criteria set by the Poverello Center board, with community input. The working group will share its recommendations at a second public meeting, likely in late August.
