My Neighbor in Need to work with HRDC
Last updated 7/2/2015 at 9:10pm
My Neighbor in Need, which opened its doors in March with the aim of connecting people with needs and people who can provide help, will be closing its office at the former St. Jude Thaddeus School Havre Central High School building and moving into the HRDC building.
Dave Snuggs, the founder the Great Falls-based My Neighbor in Need, said under the new system, HRDC’s 5th Avenue offices will be the first point of contact for people seeking needs.
HRDC personnel will then work with My Neighbor in Need to make connections with people who can provide the help.
“As a key component of this partnership, HRDC will be the initial point of contact for individuals seeking help from My Neighbor in Need. This new system will allow us to help people in a more effective and efficient way,” Snuggs said. “Although we are excited to form this partnership, the restructuring eliminated the need for a project services director in Havre.”
In an email to the Havre Daily News earlier this week, Snuggs said the number of needs that have been called into the Havre office have been less than expected.
“We would like to thank St. Jude Thaddeus Church, Father Daniel Wathen and the St. Jude Thaddeus parishioners for their generosity for allowing us to launch the project inside the former Havre Central School,” said Snuggs.
“We feel that a partnership with HRDC will put us right in the middle of those in need,” he said.
Karen Thomas, executive director of HRDC, was not available for comment this morning.
