Chase is a native of Oklahoma and has an impressive philanthropic resume. He lived and volunteered in a refugee camp in the West Bank, volunteered at a wolf rescue organization in Durango, CO, spent over a year working with monkeys at the Jaguar Rescue Center in Costa Rica and then joined Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Last summer, Chase came to Missoula to work the Tester campaign and we hit the jackpot when he offered to volunteer with us as well. Chase wasn’t planning on staying in Missoula after the November election, but he fell in love with the city and the people and we are so glad he is staying.

Chase volunteers with our Teen Team and has also made numerous trips to Helena to help families with their Green Card applications. He also comes to our office every Thursday to meet with clients, answer phones and help with whatever comes up. One of the refugees was gushing about how nice and helpful Mr. Chase is and accidentally called him Mr. Cheese instead. Now, of course, that is all we can call him. We are so grateful for you, Mr. Cheese!
