Life Houses Inc. was started because we saw many young people living visionless, passionless, and sometimes hopeless, lives. Some wandered from job to job, couch to couch, party to party. Some died. We wanted to help. Life Houses provides homes and life coaching for young adults. We believe that God has a plan for each of them. We desire to be part of their journeys and their growth.

Our Mission

To provide a safe living environment for young adults designed to foster emotional, social and spiritual growth.

Our Values

We believe that God changes lives and that through prayer and meaningful relationships there is healing and purpose.

Our Vision

To see motivated young adults empowered to reach their full potential.


Jay and Anita Sherley are people passionate about community. They work in partnership as Realtor and Broker with Big Sky Brokers. Over the years they have been involved in their community in many aspects: serving on the Fairground board, running the Stampede rodeo, as Elders at Mount Helena Community Church, organizing monthly YAP (Young Adult People) gatherings and events, working at Food Share, and as coaching staff for kids. But their biggest passion within the city is young adults. Over the last two decades, they have invited many young people in need of a place to live into their home. Convinced that when a young person comes to understand their value, purpose, and belonging, they are empowered to strive toward a powerful, positive and dynamic life style that changes legacies and the communities they live in, Jay and Anita founded Life Houses, Inc. in 2008. Life Houses now meets an important need in the Helena community, as a non-profit that provides young adults homes that encourage, influence, and mobilize.
