Greater Impact

Phone: (406) 581-4979


We’re passionate about giving people a hand up in their time of need.

We’re a non-profit designed to serve the community and, specifically, help families stay in their homes, cars, and jobs.

Our serving teams are committed to rolling up their sleeves and getting their hands dirty by meeting needs in people’s lives in personal and tangible ways, such as:

· Our Auto Team is committed to helping families keep their cars safe, reliable, and legal so they can continue getting to work and earn a living. It is so beneficial to a family when we can help with their transportation troubles so that they can continue to earn money to pay their mortgage or rent and therefore stay in their home. Our goal is to develop a place where people have the resources to work on and maintain their own vehicles.

· Our Housing Team is committed to finding solutions and assisting families with repairs, moving, and heating. We’ve repaired holes in roofs and floors, got bathrooms working, contracted electricians to safely rewire houses, and much more. Our goal is to develop a residential tiny home community for working homeless families. This affordable, sustainable, housing will allow the families the chance to purchase an asset with a zero credit, zero down, zero interest loan. The residential community would have hydroponic community gardens for people to farm most of their own food. If living in the community did not fit their long-term goals they could purchase a small piece of land and move their cottage to it or sell their cottage to another family and use the equity to purchase another home.

· Our Coaching Team is helping families take control of their hurts, habits, and hang-ups. Devoted to creating strategies to get out of debt and providing support through life’s struggles. Our goal is to develop inpatient facilities for people in the toughest battles. The building could also have a community center to host activities such as parent and child play groups, and community events like concerts, weddings, fundraisers, and funerals.

  • Addiction Recovery Coaches are coming along side people in desperate situations. It is exciting to see people on the journey to recovery. We are seeing lives change, as people experience freedom form their addictions.
  • Financial Coaches are helping families develop a budget and a game-plan to get out of debt and plan ahead. It is awesome watching people take control of their money instead of letting it control them.
  • Life Coaches for those struggling with relationships and life choices. We start this conversation with two questions: What do you need? and How can we Help? If there is something that comes up that is outside of our focus we partner up with agencies, businesses and individuals in the community to make a Greater Impact.

We want to give people in the community we love the hope of having a brighter future.
