MISSOULA – Big Brothers Big Sisters of Missoula will be closing their doors in the next few weeks.

The nonprofit organization has been strugglingafter losing major state, federal and private grants.

“We have done everything in our power to deal with the loss of a third of our budget, but we are still coming up short,” the organization said in March.

Details of their closure and continued mentor plans are still up in the air.

We have reached out and spoke with the organization, who are expect to release more information in the coming days.
