hrdc's capital campaign for the future

A little about HRDC's future home

For almost 50 years HRDC has been committed to building a better community. To continue that commitment and keep pace with growth in our area, HRDC is proud to announce the groundbreaking of our new home.

Located at 206 East Griffin Drive, our new home is designed to effectively deliver a variety of support services to our neighbors and was conceived in direct response to the growing needs of people living and working in Southwest Montana.

A community of our size needs better solutions than what is currently available, and with an estimated opening date of Spring/Summer 2023, our new home will significantly improve HRDC’s ability to combat hunger and homelessness within an integrated service environment.

Philanthropy will play a significant role in the success of our future. With the help of a dedicated team of community leaders, HRDC has raised $10.9 million dollars with a goal of raising $15 million by project completion.

GIVE TODAY and help HRDC meet a generous donor’s commitment of a $1 million dollar match. Thanks to Kendeda Fund for supporting HRDC and pledging to match dollar for dollar on the first million dollars raised following our April 15, 2022 groundbreaking.

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.
