Since 1979,we have helped people grappling with the toughest hardships survive — and then thrive. That’s the heart of our approach: we help communities turn crisis into opportunity.
Who We Help: Idealistic youth. Courageous mothers. Determined entrepreneurs. Hardscrabble farmers. Survivors of disaster or war. They live in tiny remote villages and in the slums of the world's biggest cities. We're there for them, listening to their needs, helping any way we can.
Climate change presents an uncertain future with potentially high costs for Missoula County in western Montana.

While the exact trajectory of change is unknown, preparations can be made for the future based on a reasonable range of expected scenarios. Preparing for climate change is similar to preparing for other potential events, such as fire or drought.
