WHAT WE DO
Glocal's emergency rental assistant program. Yellow, a well known song from Coldplay, champions a deep resolve for uncompromising devotion and love for one's brother or sister. We hold this same kind of resolve at our core and aspire to deploy these values through our actions.
The Yellow Project
We aim to separate our understanding of "affordable housing" from the unfortunate stigma that is often attached to it. Our goal, in time, is to build housing units deserving of the word "affordable." These will be units built with quality resources and care. We are serious in our intentions to establish "exceptional affordable housing". We are serious about:
Restoring dignity without sacrificing quality or burdening budgets.
Our conversations with the community about the most efficient distribution of public housing dollars.
Glocal is hard at work each day turning this vision into a reality. Our whole community will benefit through the prioritization of exceptional, affordable housing. While our efforts are currently focused on Gallatin County, our vision is to take affordable housing throughout the world.
Exceptional & Affordable Housing
It is our experience that "served people serve others." Glocal cultivates relationships as our skills, passions, and insights are combined with the skills, passions, and insights of other community members. Glocal asks all clients in one of our housing programs to take part in this initiative. Practically, this may include:
Quilting blankets for those experiencing great physical need.
Hosting free cooking classes.
Picking up litter to keep our state looking beautiful.
Glocal will provide the financial means for our community members to serve others while simultaneously employing their skills and talents. As the Initiative grows, our desire is to invite members of the Gallatin County community at large to participate. Authentic relationships are established on the principle of mutuality. Each person has something to give and something to receive.
Supportive Community Initiative
The Lighthouse Program
The Lighthouse Program will provide funds to be accessed by Glocal housing clients and nonprofit employees currently living and working in Gallatin County, MT for counseling/therapy. Many individuals who serve vocationally as social service providers across our county have experienced secondary trauma while at work. Access to counseling and other therapeutic options is essential for those serving in these fields yet is often met with financial hurdles. Glocal is a champion for mental and emotional health. Beginning with our clients, this fund will grow to provide care for non-profit staff members across Gallatin County.
