Thanks so much for joining us!
Dear community members,
Thank you so much for your recent participation in community meetings in Missoula, Kalispell, Butte and Helena hosted by the Headwaters Foundation. We appreciate the time you took to attend, your thoughtful responses to our work and your input on selecting an anchor organization in your community.
Just as a quick update, community members chose the following anchor organizations to lead strategic initiative collaborative work focused on building resiliency for children ages 0 to 5 in their respective counties:
United Way – Missoula County
United Way – Lewis and Clark County
4 C’s – Silver Bow County
Flathead City County Health Department – Flathead County
We’re very excited about this work taking shape in the coming months. Throughout the summer we’ll be working with these anchor organizations to create a design team in each community. These teams will meet in early fall to carve out a scope of work for the first year of collaborative work. We plan to have these complete by the end of October and award grants to community collaboratives in November.
You can find slides from the meetings here. Feel free to share these with those you know who are interested in our work but who may have missed the meetings.
As always, let us know what you thinking and do reach out with questions!
Thank you again.
Brenda Solorzano, CEO
