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 support 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.
Have you ever considered fostering a child in need? There will be a foster parent training September 18- October 25th.

Join us on Thursday, September 6th for our Annual Fundraiser at Heritage Hall. We would love for you to come and enjoy a beautiful evening, hear our story and help raise the necessary money to give these children the gift of not only safety and security, but also that quiet love and understanding that can exist only in the presence of those you trust.
The evening will include a catered dinner, hosted bar, silent & live auction, and an entertaining paddle call.
Tickets are $60 per person or $120 for a couple.
