We started Amplify Montana in Lewis and Clark County - home base for the Montana No Kid Hungry team. We conducted focus groups in Helena, Augusta, and Lincoln with the help of the following partners:
Helena Food Share
Helena Housing Authority
Good Samaritan Ministries
Career Training Institutute
Lincoln Powerhouse Gym
Augusta Public Library
A summary of findings from the Lewis and Clark focus groups can be found in the Focus Group Report (link).
The 9-week Speakers Bureau training course following the focus group series was held in Helena. Seven community members graduated from the course in October 2018 and have been engaged in the community in a variety of ways, such as speaking to student groups, being featured on Helena Civic Television, educating elected officials, and lobbying at the Montana State Legislature.
