With an eye to boosting security, the Montana Rescue Mission is renovating the front entrance of its Women & Children's Shelter.

Upgrades include a new front door and vestibule to increase security for the front desk attendant and provide an extra layer between visitors and guests, a news release from the MRM said.

"The causes of homelessness are many and complex, but the women and children who visit our shelter are in crisis," said Denise Smith, MRM public relations director. "We need to make sure that when they come to us, they feel as secure as possible while getting back on their feet."

During construction, the layout of the lobby area will also be revamped. Private counseling offices will be added for service agencies to meet with shelter residents.

In the past 16 months, MRM has given shelter to 806 women and 245 children, Smith said in the release. The nonprofit has also provided 105,000 meals to shelter guests and the community.

The MRM has raised $60,000 toward the project, Smith said. It is seeking donations from the community to raise the final $40,000 needed to fully fund the renovation. To donate, visit the MRM's website.
