ABOUT

OUR HISTORY AND GROWTH

The Butte Community Council supports the development of healthy children and families.  Our mission is to facilitate collaboration between state and local entities to build a comprehensive, coordinated early childhood system in Silver Bow County that fosters children’s and families’ health and well-being.  The Butte Community Council (BCC) was formed in 2011 with the goal of strengthening the early childhood systems in our community and building additional infrastructure to move us forward to better serve children and families. The BCC was formed from an informal school readiness work group comprised of five individuals from the Butte 4-C’s, Butte Head Start, AWARE Early Head Start, and the Butte School District.  

In 2011, communities were given the opportunity to apply for Best Beginnings Council funds to create a formal early childhood coalition in their communities.  Butte received one of these grants. We brought together 

organizations and agencies involved with young children and formally formed the Butte Community Council.  With the assistance of a contractor, we completed an early childhood needs assessment for our community regarding the services available to young children under the age of five and their families. From this needs assessment the Council created a strategic plan with priorities.   Our priorities included:  BCC awareness in the community, coordination of early childhood training, home visiting, kindergarten screenings, Ages and Stages Social Emotional Questionnaire, pre-kindergarten, parent education, creating a community resource guide, joining the Montana Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, connecting with our local hospital, and children’s mental health.

Since our formation we have continued to add programs, subcommittees and initiatives for the betterment of our community. Below is a list of the organizations that participate in the Butte Community Council. This list is always expanding evolving as we add programs and engage new areas of our community.
