Looking Back on 2013

Every year, Montana CDC has the privilege of working with outstanding businesses, and the annual report is our opportunity to showcase some of their stories. The 2013 annual report highlights just a few of the businesses and projects that we've been part of in the last year.
You'll read about Brad Bernhart (pictured at left), who owns Earlywood Designs and handcrafts unique wooden kitchen utensils; Sunflower Montessori, which cares for 150 children every day thanks to the dedication of staff and owners Katie Watterson and Correy Harrison; and Headframe Spirits, which has become a must-see destination in uptown Butte since John and Courtney McKee opened the distillery in 2010.
Last year also marked the first time Montana CDC financed community facilities. Two of those projects are included in the report: Mission Valley Aquatics and the Poverello Center. Altogether, the three community facilities we financed in 2013 serve 12,660 low-income people per year.
