According to the HRDC, young people experience homelessness in Gallatin County every day.

Without healthy relationships as a protective factor, youth experiencing homelessness are often forced to engage in risky behaviors to survive. Therefore, compromising their dignity and access to a fair chance to thrive and grow in our community.

Donations from the Bozeman community are encouraged, and are a crucial part of funding Blueprint and continuing to support youth experiencing homelessness in the Bozeman area.
