This October we celebrated our 25th Anniversary at the beautiful Ten Spoon Winery in Missoula. Past and current staff, board members and supporters gathered to raise a glass and toast to the successes we’ve had together in strengthening Montana communities.
Ren Essene, our founding Director, joined us along with Maureen Rude from NeighborWorks Montana. Together, we shared Homeword’s origin story and set the stage for Homeword’s path to continue creating sustainable communities for all.
We also had the honor of hearing Karsten Campbell share about her confident decision to purchase a Montana Street home for her family because of opportunities you helped make possible.
This timeline illustrates our history and shows that, while our strategies have changed, the importance of empowering our neighbors has not.
