THE STORY:

Friends and Family - 

Thank you for taking the time to look up more information about Youth Homes and how you can donate.  I was encouraged to run for this charity after my friend, Mandy, ran for the team for the past two years.  I get a lot of benefits out of running.  The idea that all those miles might help the lives of kids that have been in some pretty dark situations makes them a little less trivial and a little more purposeful.  I was blessed to raised in a house with loving caring parents.  I am grateful for that.  I am grateful that I now have kids of my own that are in a loving, caring environment.  Youth Homes  has seven group homes and runs other programs here in Montana to help kids that are not getting those needs met in their homes.  I have a goal of raising $500 for this cause.  The math teacher in me immediately realized that if I can get just 20 people to donate $26 (a dollar per full miles of the race), I would have that goal met.  Any amount would be great, but please consider being one of my 20 helpers.  Thank you for your support.

 

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!
