MSU Students Contribute to Addressing Homelessness in Gallatin Valley
On October 24th, MSU students are collecting critical needs supplies as donations from Wal-Mart shoppers and local businesses to support the clients at the Warming Center. MSU’s campus community can learn more and contribute to the Warming Center on October 24th at their Open House and Supply Drive with tours from 9AM-12PM. For a list of supplies that the Warming Center needs, please visit their website at www.thehrdc.org.
Last season, the Warming Center provided a safe, warm place to spend the night to more than 200 different people, varying in age from toddlers to senior citizens. The majority of guests are from right here in the Gallatin Valley and are experiencing a period of hardship. The Warming Center staff works closely with guests to help them secure sustainable long term housing by helping with housing and employment search, building resumes, and providing one on one guidance.
MSU students in CLS101 classes are learning action research about the issues of who are homeless in the Gallatin Valley and solutions to address this pressing issue; creating communications strategies to reach out to other MSU students to get involved; and ultimately, assessing their impacts and learnings as part of the CLS101 Engaged Knowledge and Community curriculum. For information about Engaged Knowledge and Community, contact Ms. Jan Strout, CLS Seminars Instructor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
