Mountain Home Montana is a nonprofit organization in Missoula, providing supportive housing and programs for young mothers ages 16-24 and their children. Young mothers and children receive basic needs, including safety, shelter, food, educational and employment opportunities, and access to mental health therapy and medical care.
Each year they hold fundraisers, such as the Festival of Trees three-day event where they showcase and raffle off a number of locally designed decorative trees, wreaths and other community contributions. This year marked the 15th anniversary of the Festival of Trees and I was asked to photograph the Wine and Pine gala event on Friday evening. Enjoy these, the first of many more images to come.
