West Mont of Helena celebrating 50 years of impact

Lacey Middlestead For the Independent Record

West Mont of Helena is marking a major milestone this fall by celebrating 50 years of helping Montanans restore dignity, ability and independence to people with developmental disabilities.

Rich in history and deep in impact, West Mont has left a lasting mark on the Helena and Montana communities.

“Working for a nonprofit like West Mont you get the opportunity to feel like what you’re doing is having an impact and that you’re doing good in the world and not just moving through the motions of a job,” said Janelle Egli, West Mont’s director of development and marketing.

“I just thought it would be a steppingstone in my career,” said Ashleigh Heimbach, who was originally hired in West Mont’s accounts payable department but is now their president and CEO. “It was really telling though in the first six months how important the work we do is for the residents, the staff and the community, and I wanted to be a major part in that work.”
