This week’s episode features Amy Allison Thompson, the Executive Director of The Poverello Center, Missoula’s homeless shelter.  Amy talks about why she often describes homeless folks as being ‘invisible’ in our community, what it’s like to run a large non-profit as a young person, and how she suggests we should act when we run into homeless people in Missoula.  Amy also responds to a question about investing ‘upstream’ vs. ‘downstream’ in community services, and much more.

Check out the Poverello Center’s website and their upcoming event, Pumpkins for the Pov.
