Note From Our CEO

As another year draws to a close, we reflect on the incredible journey we've undertaken together to make a positive impact in Montana’s communities, for individuals with disabilities, and their families. We are immensely grateful for your continued support and belief in our mission to help people live independent lives.

The heart of our mission is to empower individuals to live independent, fulfilling lives. Through our programs, we've seen incredible success stories of personal growth, skill development, and increased self-confidence. With your support, we have been able to:

  • Provide opportunities for Angelo, Tyler, and Lizzy (among many others!) to participate in an annual Art and Science Fair at AWARE’s Center for Excellence. The event allows students to express themselves creatively while also showcasing what they’ve learned throughout the year.

  • Help Julia overcome debilitating depression and gain mobility so that she could stick her feet in fresh mountain water. She described it as a cleansing experience.

  • Give Jack the confidence to find his voice and embrace his natural singing ability. He’s now on his way to becoming the best singer and songwriter he can be!

  • And there’s so much more! Our Best Day Ever Funds are continuously being put to use in ways that allow the people we serve to experience carnivals, movie nights, fishing trips, and all the celebrations that are often taken for granted.

With your help, we can continue to transform lives and inspire hope. Your year-end donation will enable us to expand our reach, improve our services, and create even more life-changing moments for the people we are honored to serve. Here are a few examples of how your donation can make a difference:

  • A gift of $50 can provide essential supplies and resources for next year’s art and science fair.

  • A donation of $100 can support memorable events that create the Best Day Ever for more of the people we serve!

  • A contribution of $250 can support investments in the workforce – allowing even more clients to reach their dreams (just like Angelo, Tyler, Lizzy, Julia, and Jack)!

To make your year-end donation, please visit our website at Your gift, no matter the size, will make a meaningful difference in the lives of people with mental health and developmental disabilities in Montana. It will provide hope, opportunity, and a chance for a better future.

It takes a team, and together we can continue to change lives, offer hope, and create a brighter future for those in our community. Thank you for being a vital part of our mission!

Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and a new year filled with joy and prosperity. Warmest regards,

Matt Bugni - CEO
