He toured the facility and met with Ellie Hill to discuss the $285,000 in federal funding he has secured in the House-passed appropriations bill for fiscal year 2009.
“You can’t spend much time in Missoula without someone telling you about the amazing work being done at the Pov. The community is proud of what is being done here, and I’m happy I was able to secure federal assistance for the Poverello Center.
