Given the lack of regular social gatherings as of late, we would like to invite you to attend our monthly virtual meeting to connect all members and provide a venue for all who are willing to share news about how your business, organization, and team are doing through these unique times.
We will open with comments from Midtown Association President, Mark Bellon and then we will host guests from Homeword and Missoula Interfaith Collaborative to present ‘Housing Advocate Network and Property Partner Program, A Spectrum of Support.’
Karissa Trujillo is Operations & Program Director at Homeword Inc. She is responsible for managing Homeword’s homebuyer and financial education programs, housing and financial counseling services, as well as for the operations and administrative functions of the organization. She is responsible for managing program and administrative staff, managing the budget, ensuring program compliance, evaluating outcomes, writing grants, and developing partnerships to address community and client needs.
Alex Ramsing joined Homeword as Landlord Liaison in January 2020. Alex is looking forward to helping develop this new position with the hope that the Landlord Liaison will increase the access Missoula County residents have to homes they can afford. This position is funded by the Missoula Board of County Commissioners. Alex serves as a resource for landlords who are interested in renting to people with perceived high barriers to finding a home, such as poor credit or previous incarceration. He is responsible for leading community-wide efforts to effectively market Missoula housing support programs to new and existing landlords and property managers with the goal of expanding the number of rental homes available to people with barriers to renting a home.
Zeke Campfield is a social worker and program director at Missoula Interfaith Collaborative. His work focuses primarily on homelessness, with a direct service approach towards helping individuals and families address basic needs as well as working on systemic change through community organizing models. Zeke helped found Welcome Back, a community organization focused on building leaders from among individuals impacted by the justice system, and currently serves on the board of directors of ACLU of Montana and Crosswinds Transitional Living. Zeke believes strongly in the power of story and is committed to providing marginalized and oppressed populations the opportunity to take a primary role in facilitating important community change.
Jane Kisselbach is a member of the First United Methodist Church in Missoula. Jane manages the church’s assistance account and is an active volunteer in various Missoula Interfaith Collaborative (MIC) programs, such as Family Promise and the Housing Advocate Network, as well as a participant in the organizing work of Common Good Missoula.
This interactive and educational event is one you won’t want to miss. If your office (or home-office) allows it, we encourage you to enjoy a cold beverage during the call, if you would like, to help create that “Mixer” feel.
We look forward to connecting with you!
