Good Samaritan Ministries of Helena will temporarily take over Our Place drop-in center following the exit of Western Montana Mental Health from Lewis and Clark County.

The commissioners on Thursday approved the temporary contract, which is effective until Feb. 29, in the amount of $12,291 per month. Per the contract, Good Samaritan is providing the services of two peer support specialists and an additional employee who is splitting time between Good Samaritan and Our Place.

“It falls under our mission statement to serve those most in need in our community,” said Good Samaritan Executive Director Theresa Ortega.

Our Place largely serves those with mental health or sobriety issues who are seeking treatment. Many of the people served are homeless.
