Mountain View Meadows


It takes time to build a better community but it begins with believing in better. We believe you want more than just a house. You want a sense of place. You want to sit on your front porch and enjoy the flowers in your yard, the landscaped boulevards and the amazing mountain views. You want to live in a neighborhood where kids can safely walk down sidewalks to visit friends and family and play in neighborhood parks.

You enjoy an active lifestyle and want to walk your dog and run, hike or bike on paved trails that connect to business, shopping, schools and entertainment. You are community-minded and appreciate energy conservation and protecting land, wildlife and water resources.

And most of all, you value time to enjoy your home, your family and all that Montana offers.
That’s why we believe in building a better community – because you believe in better!

Believe in Better: WOMEN BUILD DAY

Since 2008, "National Women Build Week" has brought together more than 117,000 all-women construction volunteers to build or repair homes. Across the U.S. this annual event, created by Habitat for Humanity in partnership with Lowes, has assisted nearly 5,000 families. About 300 organizations participated in this year's event May 5-12. Helena Habitat for Humanity, which also hosted the local 2015 and 2017 "Women Build" events, organized this year's build on a new Habitat home located in the Craftsman Village neighborhood in Mountain View Meadows. Over 50 women from the Helena area turned out to lend a helping hand on May 5 th , including volunteers from the YWCA, the Career Training Institute, Red Ants Pants and Lowes. "We were thrilled to have such a tremendous turnout for Women Build 2018," said Helena Habitat for Humanity director, Jacob Kuntz. "[Women Build] is a national event that brings attention to the often-overlooked role of women in the building trades, and how women are disproportionately affected by housing disparity in Helena. Women from across Lewis and Clark County showed up to assist a family in making their dream of homeownership a reality." Monica Lindeen, the new director of YWCA, as well as a representative of Lowes, kicked off the event with an address to the participating volunteers. A letter from Lisa Bullock was also read to the group, as she was unable to attend due to a scheduling conflict. A "Wall-Raising" ceremony on April 26 th that hosted 70 people including Helena's new mayor, Wilmot Collins, got the ball rolling on the construction of the new "Garden" home which is expected to be completed this fall. The "Women Build" volunteers, including the new homeowners and their families, most of which had no previous building experience, were led in the day's building activities by Habitat staff and skilled carpenters from Red Ants Pants. From 8:30 A.M. until 3:30 PM, participants framed and erected the remainder of exterior walls, framed all the interior walls, painted all the exterior trim, and sheathed and staged most of the trusses in preparation for roofing work. YouthBuild, a program that gives youth an opportunity to get their high school diploma while receiving training in the trades, will continue work on the home; one of six Habitat homes to be constructed in the Craftsman Village neighborhood. " Habitat for Humanity is thrilled to be building homes with deserving families in the Mountain View Meadows community," said Kuntz. "Habitat believes that families deserve the opportunity to build a better life through homeownership; we cannot imagine a better place for these families to call home."
