HRDC's response to COVID-19

In an effort to slow the transmission of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, and to protect the many vulnerable populations we serve, HRDC is deploying new ways of meeting our mission across our family of programs and services. As new directives and guidance come forth and community partner conversations continue, we anticipate adjustments to the following. We will do our best to keep up communications and will be posting updates.

We plan to take every precaution considering the vulnerability of our team members, our volunteers, our customers and our community while still making sure the essential needs of our customers are met.

Please know that we continue to receive directives and guidance from local, regional, state and national partners. We will be making operational changes routinely.

HRDC lobbies will not be open to the general public. Our Bozeman and Livingston office locations have entryway mailboxes and manila envelopes for our customers to drop off paperwork or request a phone call. Customers without a phone or email are being served on a case-by-case basis.

HRDC is Here to Help! Please let us know how we can provide you with assistance or connect you with services during this uncertain time. Example: “How can I access the Gallatin Valley Food Bank?” -OR- “I am a senior and in need of toilet paper and milk.”

Please sign up on our volunteer website to be notified of available volunteer opportunities such as Shop 4 a Senior, Food Box Packing, Food Box Distribution, Warming Center Moving Support, etc.

Cash donations are immensely appreciated and definitely needed.   Unrestricted funds give us the flexibility to meet the current local community needs especially during times like these.

We are unable to accept drop off donations at this time, however if you have a donation you think HRDC may benefit from, please click on the link and complete the form or email and let us know.

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.
