Home for Homeless Teens

Posted: Updated:

An organization helping homeless and runaway teens is getting a home to provide shelter for homeless teens. During the Yellowstone County Commission meeting Tuesday the county agreed to lease the old Horizon Hospice home to Tumbleweed. The lease is for one dollar a year. RiverStone Health closed the home last November saying it didn't need two hospice homes. Commissioner Bill Kennedy says the home will house 18 to 21 year olds. There's no word yet on when the home will open, but those with Tumbleweed say they need funds for operational costs and to furnish the facility. To help Tumbleweed, give them a call at 259-2558.
