HRDC maintains several resource guides designed to get you started on your housing search and equip you with the knowledge you need to submit strong applications.

Affordable Housing Guides

Looking for an apartment can be overwhelming in our tough housing market. Our Affordable Housing Guides provide information to help you narrow your search and increase your odds of success.

Do you have pets? Are you looking for a property management company that will evaluate felonies on a case-by-case basis? HRDC’s Affordable Housing Guides list these details about a wide range of properties to help you decide where to apply. It also includes contact information and website addresses for each property.

Once you’ve identified where you’d like to apply, contact each property directly to learn more about their application process. Many applications can be completed online and are found on property management websites. Application fees will vary.

HRDC maintains two Affordable Housing Guides: one for Gallatin County and one for Park + Meagher Counties. If you notice information in the Guide that needs to be updated, please email Anna Stone at astone@thehrdc.org so the information can be included in the next version.

Handout: How Do I Find Housing?

The “How Do I Find Housing?” handout provides suggestions, tips, and tricks to help you submit strong housing applications. The rental market is extremely competitive. To increase your chances, we recommend submitting as many applications as possible and doing everything you can to show your strengths as an applicant.

These resources are intended to help anyone looking for housing in our area.

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.
