As part of Mountain Home Montana’s celebration of its 15th anniversary, community members are invited to an open house Wednesday.
The event runs from noon to 6:30 p.m. at the organization’s home, 2606 South Ave. W. Tours will be offered each hour and people can view apartments and enjoy refreshments.
Since Mountain Home began, it has grown from a three-bedroom residential home to providing housing, support and mental health services for 45 young families a year.
The current facility boasts six transitional rooms, one emergency room and five apartments, according to a news release.
Mountain Home also has expanded mental health services and has made strides toward using evidence-based program models, including SafeCare and Parent Child Interaction Therapy.
