Chandler and Mariah not only learned a lot, but they enjoyed a rousing game of Exteme Bingo with other conference attendees!

This June, our Director of Community Impact, Mariah Ramirez, and our AmeriCorps VISTA, Chandler Rowling, attended the 2019 Montana Housing Partnership Conference in Billings! They received scholarships to attend, and they made great connections with other organizations while learning about how other communities are responding to housing issues.

This conference hosted participants from as far away as Colorado, Utah, South Dakota, North Dakota and Wyoming. A full panel of experts addressed issues such as home ownership, public housing authorities, the relationship between health and home, community revitalization and development, and more!

Our team currently partners with a number of local organizations to provide a thorough response to our neighbors who do not have a stable place to call home. By uniting, we know our community’s efforts will make a bigger difference and help those who need it most find housing. A number of our partners in housing were also in attendance at the conference, and we’re all ready to take what was learned and put it to work in our community.
