Missoula Interfaith Collaborative seeks to foster cooperation and relationships between our faith communities and social services to address community challenges together. This organization formed by 200 members from Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, Native American, and Nonreligious is celebrating 3 years of existence. Some highlights of their work together the last three years have been: creation and expansion of the Homeless Advocate Network (HAN), Effective organizing of Food Drives which raised 63,000 lbs. of food last year (2014), continual community involvement and investment toward a future emergency family shelter, growth to 10 full partner faith communities with more potential memberships in the near future. The values that support the work of MIC are: collaboration, empowerment, respect, compassion, faith in action and social justice. MIC develops trusting partnerships with open awareness of how participants' values align and differ. Based on strengths and shared values, MIC partners with stakeholders to address community challenges, to coordinate services provided and to take advantage of untapped resources and skills within faith communities.
