Notes from the nonprofit

Greetings from HRDC, District IX ! Thank you to our friends and partners for supporting our valued work to address the causes and conditions of poverty while also building pathways to prosperity for every member of our community. While we are a large non-profit and our financial statements show substantial assets, most of those are designated for specific uses - such as the stock of affordable housing (which we have developed and own). If you have questions about our current needs, we hope you will connect with us directly. 406 587-4486 or via our web page www.thehrdc.org. Thank you!

Emergency Food and Nutrition Resouces

We believe nobody should go to bed hungry. HRDC alleviates hunger through the Gallatin Valley, Big Sky and Headwaters Area Food Banks, we provide food assistance in the form of emergency food boxes. Our efforts also include healthy snack packs for the weekend nutritionally balanced lunches during the summer and supplemental foods to seniors. HRDC added the Fork and Spoon Restaurant to its Nutrition Initiative in 2012, offering pay what you can meals nightly 6 days a week. Nutritional is vital for our area's vulnerable senior and child populations and our services touch 1 in 6 people in Gallatin County.

We believe everyone deserves a safe place to call home. HRDC helps our community access safe and secure housing. We focus on meeting the needs of our customers at all levels of housing. Our team can help people access emergency shelter, find affordable housing and buy or keep their home. With housing commonly the most significant item in a household budget we also connect customer with our Financial Opportunity staff to assist with resource navigation, career and employment support, budgeting and other vital services.

We believe that lack of affordable transportation should not be a barrier to individual independence. Streamline is Gallatin Valley's zero fare public transit system linking surrounding communities with Bozeman and MSU for work and play. uses run seven days a week and includes four in-town routes with links to Skyline Transit (to Big Sky) and commuter routs to Belgrade and Livingston.

We believe in access to high quality education for all children and families. HRDC's Early Childhood Education is a high -quality education program for preschool aged children three to five years old. Our program is funded through a Head Start grant to serve 152 children in Gallatin and Park Counties. We focus on more than child care, providing for the healthy development of children and the strengthening of families. We encourage parents to be involved in their preschool experience, becoming strong advocates for their child's continued education. Our classrooms are located in Belgrade, Bozeman and Livingston providing services in education, healthy, nutrition, mental health and disabilities.

Our emerging adult opportunities are designed with a youth empowerment mindset. We take an active approach giving youth the tools to create achievable goals/ By providing work experience, focused direction and inspiration for success, we have the knowledge and resources to help navigate young people into adulthood.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Established in 1975, HRDC exists to help people with needs such as food, housing assistance, emergency shelter, preschool education, heating costs, services for teen and seniors. HRDC is a community leader in helping people overcome social and economic challenges and become self-sufficient and productive members of their community. Our goal is to facilitate, coach, and guide people along their personal path to success, providing tools, resources, and information to guide them. In addition to the wide range of supportive services we provide, we also refer customers to our network of community partners.

• Implement HRDC's three-year strategic plan to address issues community-wide issues:
1.Child Care. Low to moderate income families need affordable, year-round child care options, including after school programming.
2. Access to transportation
3. Mental Heath Services
4. Cost and availability of affordable housing, especially for low income households.
5. Outreach: people from outlying rural communities have distance barriers to accessing HRDC services.

• Building Partnerships with others who offer services to our customers.
• Building relationships with new funders who share our vision and our values and who have a capacity to fund creative, innovative solutions.

HRDC has unique capabilities to be active in seven focus areas: 1) affordable housing and overcoming homelessness 2) providing valuable services to seniors – including housing, food, transportation, and in-home medical and social care; 3) Head Start programs for pre-schoolers and youth programs for at-risk teens, 4) food and nutrition services for those in need of help, 5) community development to search for answers to priority needs and to provide funds to build new affordable condos; 6) utilities assistance and home renovations for low-income families; 7) community and special needs transportation. Our financial position is strong, although government funding is declining for several of our program areas. Our board and out leadership team are committed to investing time and financial resources in priority areas. In the near term, we have funds set aside to launch Phase III of an affordable condominium complex in Bozeman We support low income customers who aspire to home ownership by providing home-buyer education courses and through advocacy relationships with local lenders and are very successful at providing our customers with down-payment assistance. We have reserves available to make purchases of undervalued property which can be used to increase the stock of low-income housing. Our community partnerships have never been stronger. Over the last decade, we have become recognized as the lead organization for fostering community change and we have recruited talented and compassionate staff to enable us to achieve visionary goals. Beginning in 2013, we have propelled the benefits of Community Action to the forefront of community understanding, and are building new partnerships and relationships with friends and sponsors daily.

Within the past few years, we have opened (and expanded) a Warming Center that operates seasonally (winter only) and serves our tri-county region, we have opened a home providing transitional housing for men and women, we have opened a Pay What You Can Restaurant to provide hot meals -- open to anyone in need -- 365 days a year. We have opened a new food bank serve the community of Big Sky, Montana. These offerings provide a new level of safety and security to the people in our community who are struggling, which is our intended impact. However, much work is ahead, particularly in affordable housing and increasing support for people with low incomes. We have learned that public opinion is core to fulfilling our mission and that public opinion can be affected by media reporting. Accordingly, we have expanded our work with local media this year while we continue to work with local government to obtain meaningful support for our stated priorities. Another challenge is to provide meaningful services throughout the three counties we serve. Many of our services are provided in the denser areas and we strive to provide similar support for rural customers. We have built relationships with community partners to achieve this, and set up staff and local expertise in outlying communities – but current budget constraints challenge our abilities to provide such services.
