You probably know it by the blue house on Ryman Street, but the Poverello Center, the largest homeless center in the state, also encompasses the Valor House for veterans, the Joseph Residence for families and the Salcido drop-in center for the chronically homeless. In all, the Pov serves Missoula's poorest—about 300 per day—year round, without fail. That service includes food programs, case management, employment referrals, housing placement and an on-site health clinic. More than 50 employees help fulfill these services, as well as the efforts of 21,000 annual volunteer shifts. "In a way," says Executive Director Ellie Hill, "damn near everyone in Missoula has worked at the Pov at one time or another." The Poverello Center: 535 Ryman St; 728-1809;
