Montana Rescue Mission welcomes new leadership, new partnership

BILLINGS- The Montana Rescue Mission announced Monday a familiar face as its new leader in a new partnership.

Matt Lundgren, the current director of the Friendship House in Billings, is the executive director of the Billings Leadership Foundation, a new entity that encompasses both nonprofits.

Lundgren said the new move is not a merger but a shared management agreement and structure designed to improve efficiency.

“If your nonprofit and his non-profit and her nonprofit all have to hire an HR Director, a finance director, a fundraising team, it gets really expensive to run a nonprofit. If all of those folks are shared under one umbrella, you can be more efficient, you can stretch donations and you can make a greater impact in your community,” Lundgren said.

The Montana Rescue Mission started looking for a new director after the retirement of Perry Roberts.
