Stronger Communities. Safer Montanans
Dream Adaptive Recreation ski and snowboard instructors in Whitefish, MT are now certified and trained to teach lessons to individuals with disabilities. Roundup, MT Memorial Healthcare facility has a functioning security system. And, an ADA compliant ramp has been installed at the Women’s Resource Center in Dillon, MT.
