COLLABORATION LEADING TO CHANGE

​The Butte Community Council has worked to bring a number of programs and resources into our community. The successes of these efforts truly show what can happen when people join together to work for change. This work couldn't be done without the dedication of many individuals creating a vision and making it a reality. 

​Our strengths have proven not only to be the existing programs and services for children in our community, but the individual members of the Butte Community Council and the Children’s Mental Health Committee.  Each individual joined because of his or her passion and desire to make our community’s early childhood system stronger.  They are our strengths.  They come from a wide scope of services with children being the common thread.  They are motivated, creative, and volunteer for committees and events to help build our early childhood system.
