Gateway to Hope

About us

Meet the team

April Evans


I have been married to my childhood sweetheart for over 30 years, am the mother of 2 adult sons, and own a successful business. I grew up in Columbia Falls and have been involved in children's ministry since I was 18 years old.
Just over 6 years ago, while living in Washington State, I got involved with a teen mom group and saw firsthand the impact that these types of groups can have on the lives of young women and their children. Through this group we encouraged these moms to graduate, helped them to build a community of young women in similar circumstances, supported them in the everyday work of motherhood, and helped them gain access to resources.
Two years ago, I got to come home to Columbia Falls. Because I have seen so much good come out of these efforts to support young single moms, I am passionate about bringing this group to Columbia Falls.

Twyla Klundt

Vice president

I grew up in Eastern Montana and have lived in the Flathead Valley since 1984.
I am married with 2 children and 5 grandsons. I have worked with single moms throughout the years and I understand the different challenges that they face.
I am passionate about helping moms connect with one another to encourage, support and find friendships. I want them to know they are not alone and that they are valued.

Rhonda Fisher


Welcome to Gateway to Hope! I am a fourth generation Montanan who has been married to my husband, Doug, for 33 years. I have two grown children and two grandchildren. I have worked as a medical assistant, phlebotomist, and have years of administrative experience. I am passionate about people and have been involved with various Flathead Valley non-profits for almost 30 years, including advocating for young, single women with unexpected pregnancies. Being a young, single mom is difficult, and can feel lonely and overwhelming. Through Gateway to Hope these moms will be encouraged and supported. I am excited at the opportunity to walk alongside these moms.

Jody Oslund


I graduated from Columbia Falls High School in 1988 and moved to Maryland that fall to be a live-in nanny. After several years of going to college part-time, I graduated from nursing school in 1997. I worked as a pediatric nurse for two years before transferring to the emergency department where I worked for twenty years. Since 2008, I have also worked as a forensic nurse providing care to victims of sexual assault/abuse, domestic violence, child physical abuse, elder abuse, and human trafficking. I moved back to the Valley in April 2022 to be closer to family and friends and to be back where my heart never left.
I am passionately dedicated to helping those in need, especially people who are marginalized and considered the "underdog." I was raised in a dysfunctional home, struggled with addiction and unhealthy relationships, and became a single mom at age twenty-two. In 2003, I began my recovery journey, divorced my son's father, and began to learn how to cope with life's ups and downs without falling too far back into unhealthy behaviors. Developing a growth mindset and adopting the mantra of "I am a learner" has helped me to sustain a life free of drugs and alcohol for the past twenty years.
