The Human Resource Development
Council has recently partnered with
Bozeman Deaconess Hospital, Gallatin
County Health Department,
and Community Health Partners to
start the Community Care Bus. The
partnership will address nutritional,
health and human services needs
in rural communities that might
otherwise be underserved. The
central hub is in Bozeman, but the
service area includes Park, Gallatin
and Meagher counties.
The bus will provide pre-packed
emergency food boxes and information
on nutritional programs available
through the Gallatin Valley Food Bank
and other area partner food banks/pantries.
Also, it will provide information
on the Low-Income Energy Assistance
Program, Section 8 Housing, and Home
to Stay assistance, and many other community
referrals.

The Community Care bus is scheduled
to make stops in the greater Big Sky
area the second Wednesday of every
month. Visit thehrdc.com for questions and to find out the location.
