The Roads to Homelessness in Our Community-- by Tonya Horn, HRDC Warming Center Outreach and Operations Manager
Who is that person on the corner holding a sign? If I give that person money, won’t they just go and purchase beer? Are all the homeless in Bozeman transients? I see several jobs in the paper, shouldn’t everyone be working? Are there women and children in our community that are homeless? Why do people become homeless? What can be done about homelessness in Bozeman? HRDC’s Warming Center is Bozeman’s only homeless shelter. Each night, throughout the coldest months of the year, the Warming Center offers a warm, safe place to 35 – 40 men, women, children, and families. Without this life saving shelter, our neighbors in need would be left to face freezing temperatures each night. Come learn about the Warming Center and those that we serve. Let’s have a conversation and open dialogue about homelessness!
