Do you have a school aged child at home but no access to the internet? Found on the “Missoula COVID-19 Mutual Aid Organizing““I just called spectrum to get set up with the internet and thought others might be curious about the process. The wait to talk to someone was about 30 minutes, but then it was simple. They asked for name, address, and email (no payment or contract) and then popped a router in the mail (be here in ~2 days). It’s meant to be a simple self-setup – no contact with a technician. After the two months, I can drop it off at the local charter office. Number is 1-844-488-8395.”

Missoula Works is the ONLY company in our community that employ our most marginalized citizens. Low-income, homeless, in recovery from drugs and alcohol, single parents and returning citizens. In the past week we have experienced a surge of layoffs in our staffing department and a significant drop off in jobs for our Get It Done Crew. Please know that we are STILL actively employing our staff on our outdoor projects such as spring cleaning, lawn maintenance, demolition and reconstruction of decks and fencing, junk outs and junk hauling.
The more of these jobs that we can acquire, the more we can keep people working – keeping them off of unemployment, help them feed their kids, pay the rent. If you have outdoor work that needs to be done and want to support a mission-based organization – call us for a free estimate. Support out local economy by deploying our workforce to start your spring projects. 926-3400
