Amos House Challenge

We have met the challenge!
The support we have received from The Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation has enabled us to implement Amos House supportive housing services. By pairing case management services with immediate-term group housing, we are able to greatly increase the likelihood of increased self-sufficiency in the men and women who reside at Amos House. Our case management services for tenants focus on life skills coaching, budgeting and financial literacy training, facilitating our tenant’s community service work, and leadership and support in navigating the comity resources available for these tenants looking to achieve sustainable housing. In the past year we have been able to serve more than 30 men and women who were experiencing homelessness, assisting them in their work to achieve silt-sufficiency and stability.
The Washington Foundation challenge created a great opportunity to share our vision and the details of Amos House with the community. Because of their commitment, we found and inspired donors who share the passion for our work helping homeless people turn their lives around. Amos House continues to fill a critical gap in our community.
We appreciate all of the support from The Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation!

Ron served as Bozeman’s Assistant City Manager from 1990 to 2008. After retiring, Ron joined our Board in 2011. Ron received his Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Montana in 1977, and his Masters in Science in Rural, Town, and Regional Planning from the University of Montana in 1987.

During his time with the City of Bozeman, Ron saw the important role that HRDC has played in our community. Ron has seen that HRDC provides necessary social services to assure that all Bozeman residents could obtain housing, food, training, employment and the other necessities of life. He also came to understand that HRDC was always able to respond immediately as new community needs arose. Ron believes that the dedication, hard work, and compassion of HRDC’s staff make it a real honor to serve on the Board.

Ron also serves on the Trails, Open Space and Parks Committee for the City of Bozeman, and as a volunteer with the Red Cross. One of Ron’s favorite activities is walking his beloved dog every day, enjoying many of Bozeman’s trails and parks, like Burke Park, Bozeman Creek, and the Hyalite and Mount Ellis areas. Ron and his wife Claire enjoy spending their days with family, friends, and time outdoors.
