“Thanks to a $450,000 federal block grant, a permanent facility will be built near Somers for Providence Home, a children’s shelter operated by Intermountain.
A Montana nonprofit specializing in nurturing therapeutic environments for emotionally disturbed children, Intermountain provides local services for vulnerable children and their families in rented facilities.
Slightly under $2 million is needed to develop the Somers property and build a facility. Intermountain already has raised more than $100,000 and has other grant applications pending.
Intermountain purchased 75 acres bordering the Blasdel Wildlife Preserve near Somers seven years ago and paid off the property two years ago, board member Dee Incoronato of Bigfork said.”
