Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Youth Homes cares for children who are facing abuse, neglect, emotional trauma and substance abuse problems. Through our emergency shelters, therapeutic group homes, foster care and adoption programs and counseling services, we provide a safe refuge for kids while they begin the difficult process of healing. We show them compassion and teach them how to build healthy relationships. We help them trust again and give them the opportunities to build confidence and find happiness.

Since 1971, we have cared for more than 12,000 children and their families in Western Montana, but have never lost sight of the importance of making a difference for one.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Group Home Care

For many children and teens, the pain of family breakdown is too much. They have suffered tremendous loss and act this loss out in many ways. For these youth, our group homes offer care, guidance and treatment. Our hope is that we can help children make progress so they can eventually rejoin their own families, or succeed with a foster care family. Each home has a different program design that is targeted to address the unique differences of age and gender and issues of the youngsters in each home.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Youth Homes offers foster care and adoption services through our Dan Fox Family Care Program. We place children into families that we have recruited, screened, trained and licensed, plus we supportheartgallerybutton placements made by the Montana Child and Family Services Division (the State child welfare agency).

Our goal is to create and maintain healthy family environments within which children who’ve been abused and neglected can begin to heal and find permanency or stability. Some placements are time limited, and the child stays as a foster placement while he or she works toward reunification with his or her biological family. Many times, however, the child is available and appropriate for permanent placement, and we will work toward adoption or guardianship.

Children and youth

The Family Support Services Program is designed to help families with a challenging child in the home. Our ambition is to help families through crisis, provide them ongoing support, and assist them in developing better skills for living with their children.

It is our belief families are best treated as a whole, while focusing on the individual needs of each family member. We believe family relationships are often confusing and can cause serious pain and emotional struggle. We want to help.

It is our goal help youngsters remain in their current family setting, whether it is a birth, foster or adoptive family. We believe that with in-home therapy, coaching, and guidance, we can help support parents to maintain the child in their care. The length of our services is generally between three and twelve months.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We recognize that in meeting the long-term needs of our youth, we have a social responsibility to strengthen the environment in which they live now and will live in the future. To that extent, we engage and educate our youth in sustainable lifestyles in each home and program.

From our humble beginnings of in 1971, we've grown to a five million dollar organization that serves 300 kids and families each day. We operate nine group homes in three Western Montana communities and have a strong foster care and adoption program and a wilderness treatment program. We are expanding our services to offer the same support for bio-families that we have provided to substitute families all along.

FOSTER CARE AND ADOPTION
We create and maintain healthy family environments within which children who've been abused or neglected can find stability. Some placements are time limited and the child stays as a foster placement, while others are appropriate for permanent placement through adoption.

FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES
We work with biological, adoptive and foster families to help them improve and strengthen family relationships. We believe that with coaching and guidance, parents can keep their child in their care at the family's home.

We do this work because we believe we share in the responsibility of raising children, and it is our integrated efforts that provide the chance for success many times over. We have, and can, change lives. We help these children feel stronger and have more faith in themselves and the adults around them.
