Helena commission discusses proposals to address homelessness

HELENA — The Helena City Commission says it wants to take a closer look at new ways to address homelessness in the community – including a proposal to build a new temporary shelter.

During an administrative meeting Wednesday, commissioners heard about the growing impact homelessness is having and some possible responses.

“The question is how far do you want to go, and in what ways,” said city manager Rachel Harlow-Schalk.
