THE STORY:

Last year I ran the Missoula Marathon in support of Youth Homes, and I'm giving it another go this year.

Adrianna's brother, Gabe (one of the Youth Homes House Managers) has shared many stories of how the funds raised for this event have had an incredible impact on the lives of so many children at Youth Homes Inc. and now, living just down the road from Missoula in the Bitterroot, I feel more closely connected to the impact Youth Homes can have.

No different than last year....I know budgets are tight.  In any case, if you can offer any support, monetary or otherwise, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this, and take care.

Lee

 

Here's more 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!
