BOZEMAN, Mont. – Several community organizations and nonprofits in the Gallatin Valley are approaching the end of new community development to build new facilities and expand services to those in need.
The new community development is located east of the intersection of Sacco Drive and Tschache Lane and seeks to meet the growing need for affordable housing, health care and childcare in the growing area.
Two local nonprofits in Bozeman, including Community Health Partners and Family Promise of Gallatin Valley, will have their own facilities within the new affordable housing community.
The housing development is part of a larger collaboration between the Human Resources Development Council and GMD Development built by Rotherham Construction and designed by Intrinsik Architecture.
Over 230 affordable housing units comprising 136 apartments and townhouses and 96 senior housing units will be built, along with a new medical clinic and space to expand services to vulnerable families in the community.
Community Health Partners’ new medical clinic will feature 10 examination rooms, eight dental operating rooms, a behavioral health wing and a retail pharmacy.
Family Promise’s early childhood learning center will accommodate nearly 100 children, from infants to kindergarten.
Family Promise said its demand for services has more than doubled in the past three years and has made efforts to double its current emergency accommodation capacity.
Community Health Partners has experienced similar growth and now serves nearly 12,000 patients during 41,000 visits per year.
Neither group said they could continue to grow due to high land and construction costs to replace their current undersized facilities. They therefore raised funds and collaborated on this common project.
Both organizations have launched fundraising efforts to fully pay for their individual buildings.
Community Health Partners said they have reached their fundraising goal, but are still fundraising as a nonprofit, while Family Promise of Gallatin Valley has yet to raise $ 800,000 on its $ 6 million goal.
The new community development appears to be open from January 2022.
