Target demographics: Through our partner agencies, we work with the elderly, survivors of domestic violence, at risk youth, single mothers, veterans, folks living with mental and physical disabilities, working poor, homeless and many more.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Meet a need on your terms in the time you have available! The needs we meet are so simple, raking a yard, shoveling snow, helping someone move, planting a garden, for example, that you can work on your schedule to make a huge difference.

Geographic areas served: Missoula County

Programs: We do the things that someone would ask a friend, family member or neighbor to help with, for folks without that connection to community or ability to pay for services.
We are partnered with Missoula Aging Services, the YWCA, Open Aid Alliance, the Missoula County Public Schools, Hospice of Missoula and many more to meet these simple needs that mean so much.
We have been told by partnering agencies that we are "filling a significant hole in the safety net of services in Missoula."

Mission:
Imagine Missoula fosters community by helping people help each other.
Results:
The best way to describe this is through a letter from someone we have helped (all his punctuation):
"AGAIN!!!! THANK YOU for ALL YOU have done!!!! I imagine that in some people's eyes, it's nasty couches, a coat of stain... or a nasty trailer house in the ghetto... but the reality, it's people's lives.... mountains we can't climb... and the total lack of ANYONE that cares enough about us in our little worlds to see how much a dirty carpet, an unstained deck... etc., is a reminder how alone we are in this world, and how LITTLE our lives mean to people we know... and a society that WE have taken our coat off in the winter and gave to someone else that was cold, or gave our last 5 bucks in this world ... so they could have gas to get home on....
So... the playing field changed... and these awesome people from Imagine Missoula showed up, and made MY world so much better, and again... I feel like a human... that somebody cares about.... and not for what they might be able to get from me....
It is MY PRAYER, that as you go... YOU WILL PROFOUNDLY EXPERIENCE first hand what TRUE GRATITUDE LOOKS LIKE...and HOW MUCH of what YOU DO.... changes the WORLD... one lonely old man at a time!!!!
GOD BLESS
Shawn"

Imagine Missoula is a unique organization - to become involved is simple, and the work is constant, depending on your own abilities, schedule, preferences. IM has done a tremendous job of connecting the simple, over-looked needs of a community with those who are able and willing to lend a hand. ... more »

When Mayor Engen said that Imagine Missoula was the best bang for your buck, he was right. The inspiring energy and enthusiasm that Imagine Missoula volunteers bring to their many projects is amazing. I work with young mothers in our community and Imagine Missoula has been able to respond in short... more »

When I moved to Missoula and wanted to get involved with my community, a handful of organizations told me 'no thanks' because I couldn't commit to a weekly or monthly time slot (worked a rotating night shift in healthcare, my schedule changed weekly). Imagine Missoula was the answer to that problem... more »
