Homeword Interim Executive Director Karissa Trujillo traveled to Washington, D.C., for Capitol Hill Day 2024. The National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) invited advocates from organizations like ours all across the nation to participate in this event to advance the long-term solutions needed to address our nation’s housing and homelessness crisis.

Karissa met with Senator Tester, Representative Zinke and staff from the offices of Senator Daines and Representative Rosendale to discuss federal priorities and funding resources that help Homeword continue to provide homes Montanans can afford.
