Done Deal: Butte Rescue Mission Closes On Property For New Homeless Shelter

The Butte Rescue Mission said Thursday it has “reached a milestone on its journey” toward a new homeless shelter by purchasing land and a vacant building at Arizona and East Platinum streets near Butte’s warehouse district. The $185,000 purchase comes a year after the mission was forced to close its longstanding shelter on Second Street because of fire code violations. That was followed by months of bad news and let-downs in its search for a new home for those on the streets.
