Emergency Winter Shelter Closes Soon
There are just a few hotels in Missoula that see over 115 people a night, every night. But that's how many homeless individuals have been at the Emergency Winter Shelter on average since it opened for the season in October.
Last winter the shelter averaged 70 people per night.
The Emergency Winter Shelter in the Johnson Street Community Center on North Ave. W. will close for the season on April 10.
City officials say Missoula’s lower-income housing landscape has improved since a year ago, with several new projects that will provide housing for moderate- to low-income residents.
