“The Gold Dust is nestled in the Northside neighborhood of Missoula along a row of historic buildings which currently serve as office space. Less than one block from the Gold Dust is a pedestrian bridge that crosses a railroad, connecting the Northside to downtown Missoula and all its services.”


“Moving into the Gold Dust changed everything. As soon as we moved my health 100% improved. For the first time ever I felt like I was in a safe place. I was able to afford to go to school because I was living there. That led to so many more opportunities and opened doors for me.”
