Thank you to our

generous community for making a difference!

Every contribution counts and goes right where it belongs at RMDC! Your giving makes a concrete difference in the lives of families and individuals in our community – in YOUR community. An investment in RMDC helps provide the assistance our community needs right here in south-central Montana.




As Rocky Mountain Development Council celebrates 51 years of service in southwestern Montana, we honor the central role our partners play. What services we’ve been able to offer, we can credit especially to very real, creative assistance from many others.


RMDC is a nonprofit community action agency. Like our counterparts around the nation, we exist to improve the lives of community members, especially those who face poverty or isolation. We work primarily, but not solely, in Broadwater, Jefferson, and Lewis & Clark Counties.


We’re designed to be innovative and responsive–to identify needs, respond to opportunities and figure out how we can help. Over the years we’ve sheltered programs, like Helena Food Share and the Helena Indian Alliance, until they got their feet on the ground. At times we’ve hosted or joined a community conversation, like how to build better systems for people facing mental illness or homelessness. We’ve run complex federal programs, like Head Start, or packaged complicated funding to launch affordable housing projects.


But we’ve never functioned alone. Through these 51 years, we’ve been fortunate with strong city, county, state and federal advisors and partners; with great nonprofit collaborations; with tremendous support from businesses; and with assistance from really committed volunteers. The list of folks working alongside us to make good things happen in our communities goes on and on.


You are a part of these stories. We don’t take you for granted. We enjoy truly exceptional partnerships, and that’s made all the difference for us and the folks we serve. Thanks for 50 good years; we look forward to more of the same.



The following is a current list of RMDC's Community Partners. Though this list is extensive, it is not all-inclusive. RMDC is grateful for 50+ years of continued support from businesses and individuals in the Tri-County area.
