In this article, the authors reflect on their CBPR project, Salud y Comunidad: Latinos en Montana, which partnered with Mexican migrants in a new rural destination of the Rocky Mountain West. The authors discuss the context of the Montana migrant community, how they forged a research partnership, and the details of their CBPR project. Finally, they attempt to reframe some of the tensions and paradoxes inherent in community-based work with vulnerable communities, and reflect on the question, ‘is CBPR a good fit?’
