By the Numbers:

263 individuals accessed a warm, safe place to sleep during the 2018-2019 winter season.
More than 7,000 nights of shelter were provided from November 1-March 31st.
Cost to shelter a guest for the night was $52.
Nearly one in four guests were single women.
On most nights there were 45-55 individuals seeking shelter at the Warming Center.
One any given day, we estimate 100-150 neighbors are experiencing homelessness in Gallatin County.
Due to the graciousness and generosity of Christ the King Lutheran Church, we were able to host 61 women and 9 families.

Showers are made possible by the following community partners:
