In a town full of vocal activists all passionate about their individual causes, Ellie Hill
stands out. As director of Missoula’s Poverello Center, the state’s largest homeless shelter, Hill indefatigably advocates for the poor and homeless. Locals have certainly noticed her efforts, voting her the Best Activist four years running. They also recognize her potential to do much more: Last month Hill won a seat in the Montana House of Representatives in District 94 by winning the Democratic primary (no Republican opponent appears on the November ballot). If her success at the Poverello Center is any indication, Hill’s passion for job creation, affordable housing and better education will continue to serve Missoulians well in Helena.
