Poverello Center

Readers' Pick

It’s easy to make fun of Facebook for all of its needless status updates, but sometimes the social networking site is put to good use. Take the Pov’s page, which is consistently updated with thought-provoking commentary, news and, most importantly, specific calls for help for the state’s largest homeless shelter. In late June, for instance, a message asked for items to aid homeless families at the affiliated Joseph Residence: size 6 diapers, baby wipes, sippy cups, etc. Another post reminded readers that 1,000 mayors and county executives had completed 10-year plans to end homelessness-but not Missoula’s mayor and not the state of Montana. The Pov’s Facebook page currently has more than 1,140 fans, but reading its updates makes it clear just how many more people this vital downtown facility helps night after night.
