Easter Seals Moves Into a New Office

Posted: Updated:

The Great Falls Easter Seals-Goodwill group has now officially settled into their new office space at 1st Avenue North.

"Yeah we're excited we moved in about a week ago today so we moved in on the 14th. So actually over the weekend anywhere for the 11th or 12th and moved in on the 14th,so we are pretty well settled now we are really excited we have a chamber after hours coming in on Thursday the 24th. We are excited to host that and let everybody see our brand new building," explains CEO, Michelle Belknap.

This move from their old headquarters building was a long overdue and much needed one, but the old bank building is a perfect fit for their computer and culinary classes.

"Very much our building we have remodeled them and we've added on to them but never really did a major remodel we've been in business for over 65 years, so you can imagine each change our systems had to be upgraded things had to be done differently. The needs for the people we serve have changed significantly so we have in this building a supported living kitchen where people can see how to make nutritious foods, and they can do that in their own home. Where in our other building it was very crowded and not everybody can see at the same time what was going on,so it allowed us to have much better space for the individuals that we serve," says Belknap.

And the move to the new building is only phase one in the remodeling plan.

"Through this process we had different ideas, but with the community support we were able to bring this building into the way that we wanted it. The whole reason we are doing this is so that we have more useable and functional space for the people that we serve. This is phase one so this building we had to do first so we had to move the people out of 440 so there is room to remodel 440 for the people we serve out there so that is phase 2," adds Belknap.

On Thursday Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours meeting will be held at the new building for staff to show off their brand new work space.
