Leading Community Partner: Bozeman Help Center

March 03, 2016

Montana has the sobering distinction of having the highest suicide rate per capita of any other state, averaging 24.5 suicides per 100,000 people. That’s nearly twice the national average.

The Help Center, Inc. in Bozeman works around the clock to provide assistance – and hope – to those in crisis.

Our Co-op is proud to support this non-profit organization which offers a 24-hour crisis hotline (406-586-3333) and referral service to 13 counties in Southwest Montana.

The center helps clients with suicidality through crisis counseling, direct services, access to information and therapy. They assist those suffering from depression, anxiety and relationship problems as well as counseling and supporting victims of sexual assault, past and present.

The center oversees a wide variety of programs including, the Help Center, Child Advocacy, Hearts and Homes, Sexual Assault Counseling Center and Sacks of Bozeman.


Their mission to bring hope and empowerment to people in crisis is invaluable in building a strong, healthy community here in Southwest Montana. Supporting their efforts as one of our Deep Roots Leading Community Partners is truly an honor.
