Some really exciting news for the folks of Bozeman has been announced recently. If you have been living here, you see that there is clearly a housing issue. Rent so expensive that you can't afford to live here.
Home prices so high that if you don't make around $200k a year, you won't be able to purchase. And not to mention, the unfortunate number of encampments that have popped up throughout the city.

Family Promise is excited to announce they are expanding their services, which Bozeman families rely on.
Family Promise of Gallatin Valley is expanding their shelter services by purchasing the former Montana Bible College property on July 31 to create Family Promise’s A Journey Home campus. Family Promise will be hosting an open house on Monday, July 31 from 5:30pm – 6:30pm at 100 Discovery Drive.- Family Promise
Family Promise is a pillar in our community helping families thrive, even when times seem incredibly difficult.
Currently, Family Promise receives 10-15 calls per week from families seeking shelter and/or services and have had to turn away families due to limitations on space. The acquisition of A Journey Home will allow Family Promise to double the number of children and families served that experience housing insecurity, along with adding workforce housing to their suite of services- Family Promise
In order to try and be able to help every family that calls for help, Family Promise knows that they need to expand their services. They also know that the demand for services is going to continue to grow.
Over the last 18 years, the number of families receiving services from Family Promise increased 4,725%. Last year alone, Family Promise served a total of 193 families, an increase of 164% from the year before. Despite FPGV increasing shelter space, developing innovative diversion programming, and increasing staff size from 4 to nearly 40, the significant increase in needs in our community is not being met. Both emergency shelters and eight transitional homes are at capacity- Family Promise
