THE STORY:

I'm running the Missoula Marathon again; this year I'm going for a half. I still in recovery from an injury due to training for the full last year. With the support of my friends and family, my runs get better every day. I feel lucky to have had this support and encouragement throughout my life growing up in Western Montana. Not all children have this support. Some children grow up neglected, abused, homeless, parent less, or hungry. Youth Homes provides opportunities for those children with none. They provide the support and encouragement every child needs. I'm running this year to raise money for Youth Homes and the services they provide to children throughout Montana. Please consider a donation to support Youth Homes and get me to the finish line injury free this year! You can donate online at this site or in cash or check. Read below for more information about Youth Homes.

Youth Homes, Inc. wrote -

Youth Homes is a Montana non-profit organization dedicated to caring for children and youth and their families who are in need and/or crisis.

Our kids are as young as three and as old as 18. They have experienced domestic violence. Their dads are not in their lives. They are abused. They are neglected. They have been exploited. They are homeless. They are unsafe at home. They have fled. They have been involved with child protection. They have broken laws. They are on probation. They have acted out. They have run. They have emotional challenges. They are sad. They have attempted suicides. They are angry. They lie. They are honest about their pain. They are running from it. They do not belong. But they all have hope.

We provide a refuge for kids that have no where else to go. We first stop the harm and help them feel safe. Then we give them a dependable routine with competent caretakers and build healthy relationships. We show compassion by staying by their side throughout their pain. We help them find, rely on and trust family. We concentrate on reconnecting each child to the greater community. Finally, we believe it is important to give them the foundation of a strong connection to us and confidence to find happiness in their future. To do this work well we must keep our word.

We have served children since 1971!
