INTRODUCING HRDC @ Community Commons

Located at 206 East Griffin Drive Bozeman, MT 59715


To help our neighbors overcome hunger, homelessness, and the inability to provide the basic elements of a safe and productive life for themselves and their families. HRDC believes that no one should go to bed hungry and everyone deserves a safe, warm place to sleep. HRDC @ Community Commons addresses these critical community needs with two buildings:

  • Market Place to house our anti-hunger programs, including our Gallatin Valley Food Bank and our Fork & Spoon
  • Homeward Point, Bozeman’s first and only year-round emergency shelter and resource hub to integrate services to make homelessness rare, brief, and one-time.

These two buildings will provide one service delivery point for HRDC’s entire family of services designed to help families both meet immediate needs and gain tools to achieve and maintain economic stability.


HRDC @ Market Place features HRDC’s Food and Nutrition opportunities designed to ensure no one in our community goes to bed hungry. This building includes a warehouse for emergency food storage, a commercial kitchen, a grocery area, a pay-what-you-can restaurant, and space for enrichment and educational opportunities. Here our customers are greeted by HRDC staff members to begin a dialogue about how HRDC can best support their individual needs. Customers then learn about and have access to the full scope of services available to help mitigate tight budgets and to avoid or eliminate crises. 

All HRDC services are now available at Market Place, with the exception of our shelter. Our Bozeman shelter will remain open at its current location at 2015 Wheat Drive.

HRDC @ HOMEward point - Opening 2025

Homeward Point will be home to our year-round shelter. Designed to address the needs of our homeless community, HRDC’s new shelter was thoughtfully planned from a trauma-informed point of view and includes dedicated space for families with a much-needed separate entrance. Additionally, offices for HRDC staff and community partners will be located within the building to ensure immediate support can be provided to those in crisis. While onsite, our guests will be able to take advantage of a variety of services to help ensure their experience with homelessness is brief and that they are well-supported as they move toward a path of stability.

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.
