Florence Crittenton Family Services Selects Dick Anderson Construction as General Contractor for Campus Renovation

Florence Crittenton is delighted to announce that after careful consideration, Dick Anderson Construction has been selected as the General Contractor & Construction Manager to complete the renovation of their new campus on Cooney Drive in Helena.

Florence Crittenton has been working closely with Slate Architecture and engineering firms in Helena to clearly define the scope of the renovation and ensure it meets the needs of the organization’s growing programs.  Selection of the General Contractor was the next important step in the project, and they are confident in having selected the right firm for the job.  The renovation is scheduled to start in February 2023 with the childcare floor, followed by their residential programs and finally their administrative and community services wing.

Crittenton offers residential treatment programs for women and children, outpatient clinical services and home visiting programs for families, and early childhood education programs.  Until now their programs have been operating in three different facilities across Helena and the organization and the families they serve will greatly benefit from co-located services with this new campus.

Throughout Florence Crittenton’s 120-year history, they have evolved time and time again to meet the changing needs of Montana’s parents and children. When they first set eyes on this property, they envisioned the next 120 years where hundreds of families will come to heal, learn and create new dreams of their own.  This new campus will provide the appropriate space and amenities needed to serve more families when they need it most.

Executive Director, Carrie Krepps, said, “We are so excited to be partnering with Dick Anderson Construction on this renovation project. The renovation is a crucial step in moving to a single campus and we needed a firm that had the capacity and experience to meet the demands of this project. We are confident that we found the perfect fit to meet these goals and help take our organization into the next century. We want to thank DAC for their ongoing commitment to the Helena community and communities across the state.”

Bob Heberly, Vice President from Dick Anderson Construction said, “DAC is excited to be a part of a project that will make such a large impact on the Helena community.  The DAC Family has always believed in Florence Crittenton and the work they do.  This project and what they do is very personal to me.  As a child, our family supported many of the mothers and families at Florence Crittenton.  I can remember my family hosting birthdays and holidays with many of the families. How special it is that I have the opportunity to continue to be a part of Florence Crittenton in my professional career.  We look forward to improving their new facility to assist them in the support of local women, children, and families”.

The “Project Sunshine” campaign to complete the renovations is continuing and information can be found at www.projectsunshine.info.
