Homeword acknowledges that we live and work on the homelands of Indigenous people. We offer our respect for their history, culture and community. For elders, both past and present, and the path they have shown us in caring for Montana from generation to generation.

COVID-19 Renter Resources

This comprehensive list of resources is available to help Montana renters address COVID-19 challenges in a variety of ways.

Our team has also put together Financial Resilience resources to help.

Homes People Can Afford

We create our homes with our residents and communities in mind. By making our projects energy and resource efficient, they remain homes people can afford for the long term. By paying attention to aesthetics in our designs, we promote self-respect and empowerment for our residents through creation of beautiful places for them to live.

Mixed Use

Homeword seeks to use land wisely. We have developed mixed-use property, combining residential and commercial spaces to complement the urban fabric of the communities where we work. We offer commercial space at three of our properties: Lenox Flats, Acme and Solstice. Our Solstice development is LEED certified and hosts 34 homes, our Regional HomeOwnership Center and our office.


Public art is an integral part of Homeword’s approach to home creation. By asking the community to select local or regional artists to create public installments, we not only support the local arts community, but also demonstrate how incorporating art within home design fosters a rich and vibrant urban fabric.
