MISSION OF RMDC

 

MISSION

Rocky Mountain Development Council, Inc., strives to improve quality of life and promotes self-sufficiency for individuals and families.

 

RMDC ITSELF

Rocky Mountain Development Council, Inc. — a Community Action Agency (CAA) that primarily serves Lewis and Clark, Broadwater, and Jefferson Counties—was established in 1965, a year after federal authorizing legislation.

 

Over time, RMDC has sheltered programs including Helena Food Share and the Helena Indian Alliance until they got their feet on the ground. Head Start has been a component throughout RMDC’s life. Currently, RMDC encompasses senior services, affordable housing, energy assistance, child care, Head Start and provides senior volunteer opportunities.

 

UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS OF COMMUNITY

ACTION AGENCIES

1. Board Structure: a required tripartite board consisting of equal parts local private sector, public sector, and low-income community representatives and leaders.

 

2. Volunteer Support: CAA agencies attract and enjoy assistance from many different volunteers.

 

3. Leverage for Other Resources: Every CSBG dollar spent leverages nearly four dollars of state, local, and private contributions.

 

4. Innovative Solutions: CSBG funds give CAA agencies the flexibility to design programs that address specific community needs.

 

5.  Low Administrative Costs: CAA organizations are committed to keeping administrative costs low, putting maximum dollars toward community and client needs.

 

6. Comprehensive and Responsive: CAA agencies are designed to work quickly and flexibly as needs arise and funding is available.

 

7. Community and Family Programs for All Ages: Every CAA agency includes a different range of services, but most address children and youth, older adults, the working poor, and families facing crisis
