A smoke-free haven

When Heritage Living Center, an assisted living facility in Ashland, Mont., had to evacuate residents due to a wildfire in late June, St. John's Lutheran Ministries, Billings, stepped up help.

The ELCA-affiliated social service agency arranged for 50 people (Heritage residents, staff and their family members) to stay at its new center in Red Lodge, where it provided beds, linens, medical supplies and activities for kids.

Mike Skaggs, president and CEO of Soaring Eagle, which operates Heritage, told the The Billings Gazette: "They made us feel very welcome. They've just been fantastic."
