A Whitefish-based ministry that runs a popular burger chain is shutting its doors amid allegations that its leaders used threats of physical violence, verbal and psychological abuse to coerce workers.

Potter’s Field is now sending most of its staff and program participants home in the wake of those allegations, and locals are raising money to help some get there.
