Church of the Rockies, COVID-19 Community Assistance – Community Announcement
Dear Carbon County,
Over the last several years the Church of the Rockies has provided free community meals we call “Common Ground” to both Red Lodge and Roberts. Recent events have caused us to change the format of these meals. Although we can no longer meet together, we would like to offer free boxes with all the ingredients for your family’s dinner during this season.
If you would like us to deliver a box to your door, please don’t hesitate to contact Jon Milligan at 406-425-4390. When you call, you can specify the number of people and any allergies.
We are also available to deliver groceries, do your shopping, and help fill other needs as they arise.

Mental Health and Crisis Resources
For Montanans who live far away from services, there are few options for receiving support for mental illness without traveling long distances. Since 2009, Mental Health America of Montana has created a “Virtual Drop-in Center,” which utilizes the telephone and internet to provide home-based support services for people with mental illness.
The Recovery Line is for people with a mental illness who want to talk to a peer (that is, a person who is in recovery for his or her own mental illness) about issues they are facing in their lives or with their treatment. It provides a friendly and understanding person for those who just need someone to talk to.
The Recovery Line is NOT a crisis line. However, responders of the Recovery Line can refer people who are considering suicide or are otherwise in crisis to appropriate services. Through three-way calling, they can get emergency or crisis services on the call immediately.
