Who We Are

Imagine Missoula is a curious little non-profit. We're not trying to change the world (at least not all at once) - we're simply trying to foster community, to make Missoula even better than it already is. How do we aim to do that? By helping people help each other. We are ordinary people, doing ordinary things, that make an extraordinary difference for our neighbors in need.

Put simply, there are many people in Missoula whose community is 'thin' - single parents, at-risk youth, working poor, the elderly. These folks work hard just to survive; if something goes wrong, they often lack the resources or relationships to get by.

Imagine Missoula exists to help create a community of friends that is there to help - to fix a window, to build a fence, to paint a house, to plant a garden. To lend a helping hand or a listening ear. To make a difference right here in Missoula by meeting real needs and helping people live more beautifully. Simply by being good friends.

Because we believe that fosters deep community. Missoula gets better. We all win.
