Americorps VISTA Volunteers

Being an AmeriCorps VISTA member is about making a tangible difference for communities and individuals addressing our valley’s biggest challenges: poverty, inequity, homelessness, and lack of access to critical services. You get amazing benefits too: gain work experience, enhance your resume, and pay back student debt or further your education.

Community Services Block Grant VISTA

The overall goal of this project is to increase access to anti-poverty community services and programs for low-income families across Montana by developing a streamlined, statewide community needs assessment for all Human Resource Councils across the state. In Montana, an estimated 128,123 of 1,079,864 people live in poverty. Like VISTA, the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) was also created by the Economic Opportunities Act of 1964 to serve the needs of the poorest Americans. Funds are distributed to local “Community Action Agencies” (CAAs), ten in Montana, to support a wide range of community-based activities to reduce poverty. In the last year, CAA’s assisted 72,701 families in 37,640 households living in poverty. CAAs vary in capacity and there is a need to standardize community assessments to ensure an equal and equitable process is implemented for all Montanans. This VISTA project will move Montanans out of poverty by developing a state-wide needs assessment process resulting in more effective anti-poverty programs. Located in Bozeman, MT.

Brooke Poole

Public Sector

Since 2015, Brooke has been working with Allergan Aesthetics, Body Contouring. In 2018, Brooke began her role as Senior Manager of Training. Brooke graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Commercial Photography from Appalachian State University in 2011.

Brooke began her role on our Board in 2019. However, she feels it’s more fitting to say that she gets to serve on our Board. For Brooke, an evening at our Fork & Spoon was her first glance into our organization’s powerful work. As Brooke states, joining the Board has only expanded her appreciation for the caliber of people leading our mission and the impact of our vast ecosystem of services. While metrics alone are impressive, Brooke likes to visualize each number as an individual example of support – an extension of a helping hand, a moment of relief – given to one of our neighbors. She is grateful for the opportunity to participate in shaping HRDC’s future.

Although Brooke spends most of her volunteer time with HRDC, she was fortunate enough to build with Habitat for Humanity over the course of the summer in 2020. Her favorite place to spend time is anywhere under the Big Sky, although Hyalite may be her favorite place on Earth.

Ron Brey

Public Sector

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.
