In August of 2023, the City Commission requested that City staff coordinate a meeting with local nonprofits and other partners to discuss gaps in support for unhoused community members. Out of this discussion a group of nonprofits formed the Emergency Housing Working Group. The City of Helena has been providing a meeting location and technical support for the Working Group to find solutions to provide emergency housing for the unhoused during the winter months. City and County staff have been in attendance at the working group meetings to provide support and special subject expertise. The Working Group has had discussions on possible locations for winter shelter.
This Working Group is part of an ongoing larger discussion about finding near and long term solutions to provide permanent and stable emergency shelter.
