Providing food, shelter, help and hope to Missoula’s homeless and hungry.

Current Needs

For over 40 years, the Poverello Center has provided a necessary safety net for our community members living in hunger and homelessness. An award winning non-profit organization, the Poverello Center provides education, advocacy, and a multitude of services to improve the health, well-being, and stability of people struggling with poverty in Missoula.

The Poverello Center appreciates all the support we get from the Missoula community. Donations of food and supplies are critical to our mission to provide food, shelter, help and hope to all who ask. Our food and supply needs change constantly. Each week we will post what our top need of the week is.
